Ooops. From the internal bug, I assumed this to be long standing Gerrit
behavior, which is why I sent it out in -rc to begin with.

src[len] could also be one of "\n\r", see the caller
recv_sideband for sidebase case 2.

Yes, they are all valid...

... but here we need to check for src[len] for validity.

I made no assumptions about isalnum, but rather needed to shortcut
the condition, as accessing src[len] would be out of bounds, no?

unlike here (or the rest of the block), where len is used correctly.
