Into my FreeBSD fix I've also included '\0' into the list of possible 
line terminators. Previously '\0' has been considered as "ordinary" 
character, neither token separator nor line separator, which is probably 
incorrect. Also I think your patch is partially incorrect, since it 
ignores situation when interpreter string exceeds MAXSHELLCMDLEN - it 
just truncates name in this case.

  Rewrite the loops which extract the interpreter name and arguments out
  of the #! line for a shell script.  The loop was improperly handling a
  missing newline by scanning past the end of the buffer, resulting in a panic.
