Base64 decoder chokes on a whitespace

           Summary: Base64 decoder chokes on a whitespace
           Product: XML-RPC
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Source
        AssignedTo: rpc-dev@xml.apache.org
        ReportedBy: vnesek@yahoo.com


base64 decoder in apache xml-rpc can't handle whitespace
(' ', \r, \n, \t) embeded in Base64 data. As a number of
clients split base64 in a multiple lines (example,
python xmlrpclib) this is a serious interoperability issue.

To make things worse apache xmlrpc don't even throw an
exception, instead it incorrectly decodes data. 

In order to fix this bug you can use any of number of
correct opensource base64 encoders available on a net.
