    Fix CacheFetchProc in cases where the fileserver hates us
    In some situations, the fileserver returns a large negative number
    as the length in an FetchData64 call. The old FetchProc code used an int32
    to hold this number, and checked length > 0 before attempting to read more
    data. The new code uses a uint32, and does while (length), which causes the
    cache manage to loop until RX aborts the connection.
    This patch restores the old behaviour. length becomes a signed int once more
    (and the original 32 bit length from the wire is used, rather than truncating
    the 64 bit value), and the conditional checks for > 0.
