Fix ticket #5675
Because ExecuteCommand allocates temporary string space on the stack,
proportional to the length of the command to execute, a stack overflow can
occur when the the command is too long.
This can be triggered remotely e.g. from the VLC Web interface, by
which sends a string of length 300000 to ExecuteCommand, crashing VLC.
