Description

That's the case for http://fits.gsfc.nasa.gov/nrao_data/tests/ftt4b/file013.fits reported in http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/gdal-dev/2010-November/026637.html

Contrary to most files, it doesn't end with 'END' keyword. The solution is to use the fits_get_hdrspace() API to get the number of key/value pairs and iterate over it without relying on END being the last keyword.
