Here is your original loop:

        if ((tagbuck = find_string(dptr, STARTING_SEQUENCE, AP_BRIGADE_LAST(bb))) != NULL)
            dptr2 = tagbuck;
            dptr = tagbuck;
            while (dptr2 && 
                  (endsec = find_string(dptr2, ENDING_SEQUENCE, AP_BRIGADE_LAST(bb))) == NULL)
                dptr2 = AP_BUCKET_NEXT(dptr2);
            if (endsec == NULL) {
                /** No ending tag, needs to become an error bucket */

The conditions for your while loop make no sense.  dptr2 will never
become NULL and there is no guarantee that we'll find the ending
sequence in this brigade.

Hmmm... Why is there a loop at all?  find_string() loops through the
brigade so there is no sense in looking further.  The loop needs to go
away...  Either we find ENDING_SEQUENCE in the current brigade or we

I'm starting to get the hang of this code...  I just need to find a
quiet spot for a while.  (If you are actively working in the code,
let me know because I've got better things to do.  Otherwise, I'll
keep working on it as time allows.)
