Fix a bug while decoding headers
Patch is available for version: alpine 0.999999
 
This patch fixes a bug that makes Alpine go in an infinite loop. The bug happens because there is an encoding error in the header of a message, which makes Alpine miscompute a length and never advance past a point in a string, making it fall into an infinite loop.
