If you are sure there is nothing but SAFE-CHAR, check for space or and

I'm absolutely sure.
Really ???


decoded gives :

0x7B 0x53 0x41 0x53 0x4C 0x7D 0x75 0x73 0x65 0x72 0x6E 0x61 0x6D 0x65 0x40 0x72 0x65 0x61 0x6C 0x6D 0x0A

To me, the last char is a plain Line Feed character, something that is not in the SAFE_CHAR collection :

SAFE-CHAR                = %x01-09 / %x0B-0C / %x0E-7F
                           ; any value <= 127 decimal except NUL, LF,
                           ; and CR

And you are wondering why it's get Base64 encoded ?
