fossil: fix potential use of uninitialized string.

If 'fossil status' forgets to print a newline after "tags:", then
get_till_eol() would simply not bother to copy any bytes into dest,
which is an uninitialized char array (random junk). Fix by always
terminating dest -- make it an empty string if no newline in src.
