#9032 closed patch

SCI: ReadString fix to repair LSL5 password

Hi there,

Someone replaced readLine with readLine_NEW, but _NEW returns ending LF and ReadString from SCI/FileIO doesn't want that, so LSL5 password gets an extra char, decodes it and instead of NONE it will get NONE(copyright-char). So it wont recognize that password is not set and asks for a password that the user isnt even able to enter :)

This patch fixes it.

Thanks for your patch, it seems that SCI doesn't want the LF char at the end. Applied as-is - this seems to fix the password problems in LSL5 for good
