The other issue here is that (by design) getLocEnd() doesn't actually return the SourceLocation just past the end of the statement, but the SourceLocation of the start of the last token in the statement. If you actually want the SourceLocation following the statement, you'll have to use Lexer::getLocForEndOfToken.
