FS#73 - Blend map cannot get 256 entries

Reported by cshake + pov @ gmail . com in p.beta-test, 14th december 2009

I wrote a simple script to convert fractint color maps to povray color_maps so I could use ApoMap to make nice fractal colors for pov, but I ran into
“Parse Error: Blend_Map too long.” The map has entries from 0/255 up to 255/255 (inclusive). I looked up the documentation which says that color_maps can have from 2 to 256 entries, and this is exactly 256 entries.
I’m posting this in beta-test because I assume that the documentation is correct for v3.6, and that a previous version can handle 256 entries.

Suggested (and tested solution on #4900) : changes the place of the tests, and use the right index!

It's in express.cpp (attached)
