One more XBee tools-related bug

This time in (unofficial, unsupported etc) API Frame Maker tool from Digi.

This is, by the way, a very handy tool when it gets to understanding +XBee API operation. In seconds you can tailor a packet for all your needs and send it using X-CTU software (which feature-wise is exhostive, but usability-wise is a pain). Well, this API Frame Maker tools saves a lot of time.

But the bug took me a few hours of debugging (as usual, yes). It incorrectly calculates length for at least one API frame id - '0x90 Receive Packet'.

So be warned!
