CVE-2007-6036 denial of service security bug in liveMedia

Description

The liveMedia library has a bug in the RTSP code that makes it possible to cause a denial of service in applications that use the library. This is reported in CVE-2007-6036.

The latest version of liveMedia includes the fix. But that is probably way too much churning for a stable branch. So I am including a much smaller patch which fixes just the things associated to the security flaw.
