I think your patches has some nasty buffer overflows. AFAIK, psz is 
dynamically allocated from the vlc variables to fit whatever values is 
involved, so you can't blindly overwrites it with something else with 

You might also consider using the same ugly tricks that is in the HTTP

the name of the item without the password, but keep the password in 
the “MRL”.
