That seems obvious to me -- bound and bound_buffer point to the same
at this point.  I think you should go ahead and push the patch in.


Maybe as a follow up patch, if we moved the "bound = bound_buffer;"
line further below, the code would be a tiny bit more obvious, as both
branches of the if will have the same pattern in their last two lines.
I'd also assign "str + k" to a temporary; all that pointer arithmetic
makes things not as clear as they could be IMO.   Something like
this (rebased on top of the constification):


Thanks,
