Not sure why I didn't realize to do this while debugging, indeed their
fix seems to be to allocate one more byte few lines above.

if ((fields = (char *) malloc(n+2)) == NULL) /* possibly 2 final \0s */


I'm in favor of copying their fix as I can't say that I have a super
deep understanding of awk's internals.
