in exp_command.c, the Exp_OverlayObjCmd() function takes the name of the command to pass to execvp() from objv[0], instead of objv[i], which causes it to always try to exec a command named "overlay", which fails.

This appears to have been introduced with revision 5.52, because when this function was converted from an argc/argv style command to an objc/objv command, the method used to traverse the argument list was changed slightly, and this got missed.
