Re: Infinite loop in make_cv_type

Dead simple really.  The stabs on the ARM are broken into very short 
strings for historical reasons (there was once an assembler that couldn't 
cope with stabs strings of more than about 100 characters).  We are simply 
running off the end of a stabs string without calling STABS_CONTINUE.  
Thus we end up parsing the following string twice: once on the overrun and 
the second when dbx_next_symbol_text returns it.

OK to apply?
