An out-of-range flaw was found in znc where if it received a "PING" from a
client without an argument, std::string would throw a std::out_of_range
exception which killed znc. This is fixed in subversion [1].

Some unsafe substr() calls were fixed as well. These are of lesser impact
because a valid login is required in order to cause a std::out_of_range
exception. This is also fixed in subversion [2].
