[aprssig] Issue with stations beaconing with leading spaces in path

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We've been chasing an issue on some of the peripheral mailing lists related
to some stations using paths with a leading space in one of the elements.
i.e. "[SPACE]WIDE2-1"

I would hazard that many of these leading spaces are coming from parsing
comma separated lists for the path. It isn't unreasonable to expect a user
to enter "WIDE1-1,[SPACE]WIDE2-1" instead of the expected
"WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1", so this might explain why this issue is periodically
seen.

I would recommend developers examine their tokenization routines for path
elements and consider adding support to remove excess spaces around path
elements entered by the user.
