Clients with a super long name can crash the client by setting the name and requesting client info for themselfs (or client info is requested by some other client). This happens within roar_ctl_c2m(). The comments within this function already note that there may be such a problem.

This is an objection against the current pre-release (1.0beta4-pr0).

There should be a replacement using external data buffers. However removing this function requires soname change.
