[GE dev] IFS redefinition in inst_common.h

Hi,

the procedure "GetConfigFromFile()" in the inst_common.sh script  
redefines the IFS before the configuration file is read to be just a  
<NEWLINE> character. After it's read, the IFS it set to <3*SPACE 
+NEWLINE>.

Why both IFS redefinitions and three times a SPACE, as it might break  
the usage of TAB in the configuration file.

The default is "SPACE+TAB+NEWLINE" in bash at least.
