Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] Fix crash in virsh after bogus command.

If you ran virsh in interactive mode and ran a command
that virsh could not parse, it would then SEGV
on subsequent commands.  The problem is that we are
freeing the vshCmd structure in the syntaxError label
at the end of vshCommandParse, but forgetting to
set ctl->cmd to NULL.  This means that on the next command,
we would try to free the same structure again, leading
to badness.  Make sure to set ctl->cmd to NULL after
freeing it.

Tricky! This only reveals itself if you put multiple commands on a single line (separated by ";"), the first command is valid, and one of the subsequent commands on the line is bogus. (Yes, I verified presence of the crash before applying, and absence afterwards).
