#161 p2p file support broken?

No

Steps to replicate:

1. Download p2p.p2b from blocklist.org
2. run 'peerguardnf -n p2p.p2b'
3. run 'peerguardnf -m -h p2p.p2b'

Result:

"""
Reading blocklist
detected ASCII blocklist
Blocking 1 ranges (4294967250 IP addresses)
"""

All network communication is then blocked (including
localhost!). This also happens when peerguardnf is run
as a daemon.

This is probably either a bug in p2p reading or p2b
conversion. This bug deserves attention, because it
effectively prevents the user from running peerguardnf
with more than one blockfile (eg. 'cat p2p.p2b.p2p >>
guarding.p2p; cat gov.p2b.p2p >> guarding.p2p' etc.)

Incidently, peerguardnf works fine with p2b files.
