I'm puzzelled that we need this change here, but we have 175 other
uses of strchr without trouble

  $ grep strchr src/*/*.c | wc -l
  174

Is the difference just that we're deferencing a char * for the second arg
rather than using a constant value ?

Would it suffice to do

  int c = *cur;
  if (strchr(toescape, c))
