Base64 decoder cast exception if byte sent in < 0

           Summary: Base64 decoder cast exception if byte sent in < 0
           Product: Commons
           Version: 1.0 Alpha
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Codec
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: junk@miginfocom.com


RFC 2045 stipulates that any unknown byte encountered during decoding should be 
disregarded. All negative bytes sent to the decoder will produce the following 
error though:



java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -62

	at org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64.discardNonBase64(Base64.java:478)

Cuurent method:

    private static boolean isBase64(byte octect) {
        if (octect == PAD) {
            return true;
        } else if (base64Alphabet[octect] == -1) {
            return false;
        } else {
            return true;
        }
    }

Fixed method:
    private static boolean isBase64(byte octect) {
        if (octect == PAD) {
            return true;
        } else if (octect < 0 || base64Alphabet[octect] == -1) {
            return false;
        } else {
            return true;
        }
    }
