How can either ident_buffer or buffer be null in this case, since
they are both arrays of chars on the stack? I presume you mean
buffer == 0?
Do you realise how much code has to handle empty lines, that is lines
that are only a new line? And all this will now either be audited or
break? Is that what is being said?
Because that is the symptom. There is an empty line where the output
stream gets the fail bit.
