yepp. the code is borked. Just had a look on it. If you have some
chars at the end of the line where they don't belong the code makes
"BOOM!". Besides that the code leaks some memory if a parse failure
occurs. And finally indenting is broken on that specific section...

Lathiat, you wrote that code, please have a look on fixing it.
