[vlc-devel] failure to handle ' within " " block

VLC on Windows, fails to deal properly with the ' within the " " pair in  
this command. Instead, it treats it as closing the block, and then goes on  
to really mangle the parameters.

vlc.exe -I dummy "C:\Temp\Videos\Movie.mpg"  

This patch fixes the issue. I'm not sure if it breaks other stuff. Is this  
the right way to go about this?
