You misread what I posted. I wrote "str[--i]", not "str[i--]", and the
difference is crucial. Your change is wrong because a) the first
character it checks is str[len], which is always 0, and b) it never
checks str[0]. I propose you expand the tests, because none of them
catches this bug.

Before fixing this, please read HACKING and post a log message along
with the patch. Oh, also please fix the alignment of the paramters in
test13, test14 and test15.

Keep trying, you're almost there. :-)
