bug in params.c

Hi all out there,

I've found a nasty bug in params.c:

Function EatComment consists of the following line:
   for( c = mygetc( InFile ); ('\n'!=c) && (EOF!=c) && (c>0); c = mygetc( InFile ) )
the (c>0) comparison fails for German umlauts, therefore EatComment returns
and the rest of the services file cannot be parsed anymore. In my case the
umlaut was in a comment in the [global] section so no services were available
at all. I fixed it by omitting the (c>0) comparison:

   for( c = mygetc( InFile ); ('\n'!=c) && (EOF!=c) ; c = mygetc( InFile ) )

Greetings, Osama
