Also the algorithm for reading a decimal value within the above function
was simplified (we found cases where what was replaced did not work), as
was the routine for reading a hexadecimal value (this being in the
function keepalive_read_chunk_size()), the same reason for its replacement

Since this diff is independent of other changes made recently, I have done
it off the original file in CVS/Flood 1.1, which I have in my local
directory c:\flood-1.1

was inadvertent, and if so, it looks like we will have to add this
functionality as well or our readback of data in that case will be
