You problem could be:

>     (beginning-of-buffer) ;; start at the beginning

,----[ C-h f beginning-of-buffer RET ]
| Don't use this command in Lisp programs!
| (goto-char (point-min)) is faster and avoids clobbering the mark.
`----

>           (end-of-buffer))))))

,----[ C-h f end-of-buffer RET ]
| Don't use this command in Lisp programs!
| (goto-char (point-max)) is faster and avoids clobbering the mark.
