The test assumes that nss3 lib contains a string likes:
$Header: NSS version.number, e.g. "$Header: NSS 3.16.2"
Version: NSS version.number, e.g. "Version: NSS 3.34.1"

But the current test expects that the version.number is followed by a 
space immediately. For example, "$Header: NSS 3.16.2 Basic". So, it 
tries to locate the next space index for parsing the version.
Unfortunately, that assumption is not true on some NSS builds. For 
example, "Version: NSS 3.34.1
This fix just cares the chars, such as "." or "0-9", after "$Header: NSS 
" or "Version: NSS ". If a char, which is not in the specific char set 
("." or "0-9"), is met, that means the version has been extracted.

The followings are some snippets of nss3 lib from different NSS builds.
