I took the attached base64 encoded file (299680 bytes) and wrote a "hello
world" program in Windows with 3 different base64 "algorithms"
1. The epan_base64_decode as it currently is in the SVN
2. epan_base64_decode with Chris's modifications
3. base64 decryption algorithm provided with bug 7349 (before I realized one
already existed).  Coded much differently than epan_base64_decode().

All three algorithms decrypted the file in the exact same way.  All had the
(correct) same number of bytes post-decryption (224760), however the "file
size" and "size on disk" where larger than 224760 bytes.  I see that as more a
function of the OS/file system than a bug in the decryption algorithm.

Unless I'm missing something, I would consider this "not a bug" as the current
SVN version still decrypted just fine.
