Description:
------------
There appears to be a bug in json_decode().  In some cases, if there is an 
underscore in one of the names in a JSON string, json_decode fails to retrieve the 
value.  If the underscore is replaced with nothing, json_decode properly retrieves 
the value.  However, some names with underscores work properly.

I've actually solved this "bug".  It's not a bug at all.  The problem was that my json string repeated the same names several times.  However, the values were not provided twice.  So, when I renamed the "alarms_alarm_num" and "alarms_lsn" names to "alarmsalarmnum" and "alarmslsn", I was actually correcting the fact that those names were listed twice.

Sorry for the bother.
