A general reflection on this problem is that this case explains exactly why
you want your code to run and get evaluated in the simulator first, as then
debugging things like this is pretty easy... I've never understood how you
Windows-people manage without it.

Remarks on the code:

* bookmark_get_next_field() is overly exessive and both sets and copies huge
  chunks of memory on each call. I can't see any obvious error in your use of
  strtok_r() other than I think you should solve the repeated invokes in a
  loop or similar.

* Boundary checks! Your code assumes all-over that strings will fit within
  the buffers you consider the maximum sizes. Don't assume, check!

* Indentation. We use 4 spaces. You use 3 and 4 mixed at various places.

* Variables first, then code. We try to be C89 compliant, and having variable
  declarations mixed with code is not.

* Don't you think there will be any mp3 songs using '*' in the title? You
  can't blindly assume there won't. Also, if there would be a title longer
  than MAX_PATH in a bookmark, you overflow the buffer.

* Please don't use CRLF newlines in the code.

Sorry for not having actually run this to find any bugs.
