Why find the line length first, then to start searching to the end of the TVB? A comment suggests that tvb_get_ptr() was used previously, so this might be a
botched rework of that code?
Currently neither linelen nor next_offset are used in that function 
assignment, so there's clearly something amiss here.  To me, it looks 
"linelen = tvb_find_line_end(tvb, 0, -1,&next_offset, FALSE);" is just
superfluous, unneeded code that was probably due to "copy-and-paste" or rework
by the original author, as the code has been that way since day 1.  See
Yes, this could be coding away from tvb_get_ptr() (which is a Good 
Thing(sm)). Still, looking at the record format, it's not bad to use 
the record length when checking the correctness, so I think changing 
it to this will do:
       space_offset = tvb_find_guint8(tvb, 0, linelen, ' ');
       space_offset = tvb_find_guint8(tvb, token_2_start, linelen, ' ');

Looks good, I have checked in that code.
