We are currently working on fuzz testing feature, and we found a heap-buffer-overflow on `cflow`.

The stack traces are as follow:
==29255==ERROR: AddressSanitizer: heap-buffer-overflow on address 0x6210000038e0 at pc 0x7f38f7b8a66e bp 0x7ffee4601140 sp 0x7ffee46008e8

    #5 0x55a3537eea14 in main .../cflow-1.6/src/main.c:811
The full stack trace is attached.

Step to reproduce

We configured `cflow` using `CFLAGS="-g -O0 -fsanitize=address" ./configure --disable-shared` and built in using `make -j10; make install`, and run it with:

./cflow 24 3 <attched file> 123 _ -l cflow -a -b -I t -D --debug --emacs -v -v -m -x --omit-symbol-names
The input file is attached.

- OS: Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS
- GCC version: gcc 7.5.0
- cflow version: [cflow 1.6](https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/cflow/cflow-1.6.tar.xz)

Thank you.
