#56 overlay tries to execvp() wrong thing.


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.

    Made the change to the head. Not committed yet, due to SF CVS services down and migrating to a different data center. Commit will happen asap after CVS service has been restored by SF.
