Fixed an issue with a readline from socket in bpd #40

in several situations I got a crash due to having the strip() called on a None object. This simple change should solve that.

There are a couple of slight problems with this change:

  • First, readline() should never return None. If this is happening, the root cause of this bug is elsewhere (probably in bluelet) and this change just hides it. (This is not such a big deal; it's good to have a fix even if we don't know the root cause.)
  • More importantly, this is supposed to skip the line if it is whitespace-only. So there needs to be another conditional (if not line: break) after it is stripped.

Fair enough.
I got this crash several times after bluelet reported a "error: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer", which I thought was a legitimate exception after all (the problem seemingly on the client side).
Let me know what you think about it, in the meantime I'll add the second check.

Awesome; thanks for the fix! Meanwhile, I'll continue trying to figure out what's going wrong inside Bluelet...
