It seems the problem manifests itself if the string contains "+NO+"
somewhere. It doesn't matter where in the string.

The parser stops after this character sequence. If it happens to be at a
natural base64 four character boundary it only complains about a missing
semicolon, ignoring the rest of the line. Otherwise it complains about
the missing semicolon and then the partial base64 string.
