Add the missing condition to end the loop once line 1 has been
reversed-searched.

This is ok.  Some of these could probably have gone in under the obvious
rule, though I completely understand if you'd rather not do that.

Effectively, some fixes are easy enough to be obvious, but still sometimes
an explicit review helps to see e.g. when it is time to restructure
the code (e.g. to restructure it using c++).

Thanks for the reviews, I pushed all 3 RFA fixes.
