Fixed bug 1780 - SDL_RWFromFile() sets an error on Android although a valid SDL_RWops pointer is returned.

Philipp Wiesemann

SDL_RWFromFile() sets an error to be queried with SDL_GetError() on Android although a valid SDL_RWops pointer is returned.

This happens if the fallback implemented in SDL_android.cpp is used to load compressed assets (see README.android in section "Loading assets") and results in a message like "java.io.FileNotFoundException: This file can not be opened as a file descriptor; it is probably compressed". I think this is confusing and not needed because the loading works as expected.

I attached a patch which changes SDL_android.cpp to not set an error if compressed assets are loaded. In this case also no Exception is queried and no additional string are created.
