FakeSMIL treats semicolon at end of a values list as if there were a zero after it.

Bug #243115 reported by Daniel Holbert on 2008-06-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

See attachment, which has
    red rect: values="100; 200;" <--- trailing semicolon
    blue rect: values="100; 200"

Due to the semicolon, FakeSmile actually treats the red rect as if it had values="100; 200; 0". In the testcase, this makes the red and blue rect not line up, with the red rect finishing at x=0. This is a strange error-fallback behavior.

  Option A: Ignore final semicolon -- red rect and blue rect should match exactly. (Opera 9.27 does this.)
  Option B: Treat trailing ';' as a syntax error, and don't play the red rect's animation at all.

Confirmed fixed, using script version 0.1.27. The two squares now move in sync ("option A" from original description). Thanks!
