nr_route.ndigis is used at 
  nr_call_to_digi(&digi, nr_route.ndigis, nr_route.digipeaters),

Image nr_route.ndigis is 0.

static ax25_digi *nr_call_to_digi(ax25_digi *digi, int ndigis,
        ax25_address *digipeaters)
{
        int i;

        if (ndigis == 0)
                return NULL;

           ################ here we leave

        for (i = 0; i < ndigis; i++) {
                digi->calls[i]    = digipeaters[i];
                digi->repeated[i] = 0;
        }

        digi->ndigi      = ndigis;
        digi->lastrepeat = -1;

        return digi;
}


Image ndigi is 8 (AX25_MAX_DIGIS), as large as nr_route.digipeaters (because it's digipeaters[AX25_MAX_DIGIS]).

we fill the array from i = 0 to i < ndigis (=7) -> 8 times == sizeof(digipeaters)

-> everything is fine with that.
