Patch level 8
no warnings at all, been running for months, and like i said, happens 
with both my hacked up source, or with a frshly downloaded copy from jhu

gdb reports:
 #0 0x5d206464 in null (
 cannot access memory at address 0x646464c

which tells me nothing, but it seems obvious it char *argument getting 
overfilled on calls to ACMD's if they are too big.

Theres no checking done to trim them before accessing the memory it 
points to
