genini patch to support the new message field

A recent addition of a message field to Cygwin's setup.hint broke 
genini.  The introduction of a new unquoted token between the key and 
the value confused the get subroutine.  The attached patch adds a 
special case for message fields, allowing correct parsing in this 
particular case.

I'm not sure this is really the best solution.  It would perhaps be 
better to treat double quotes as the start and end of a word regardless 
of when the quotes begin and end on the line.
