[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] Handle incomplete escape seq in queryformat (RhBug:1755230) (#922)

Previously, we assumed a backslash character would always be followed by
a character to be escaped, and advanced our "start" pointer by two
places before the next iteration.  However, this assumption breaks if
the lonely backslash happens to be the last character in the query
string, in which case we would end up pointing beyond the \0 and let the
parser wander into the unknown, possibly crashing later.

This commit ensures we detect this corner case and error out gracefully
with a message.
