I'm not sure the old netbsd code is wrong - after the fix in rev 1.68
(netbsd 3 timescales).
All the values used when stripping the newlines should be valid.
Maybe there is something iffy with the sequence points in some of
the earlier code - or gcc is just getting them wrong.
The string buffer being extended shouldn't make a difference - even
if it isn't the last fragment of the heap list.
I've done a test with rev 1.84 and got the string extended while adding the
output from $(...) and it was ok - but I'm using a much older gcc.
I think it might be worth looking as the asm output from gcc for
a compilation that is known to get it wrong.
