Bug Description

Hi! I have Ubuntu 12.10 , xbindkeys-config: 0.1.3-2ubuntu1.
I find that when command sequence in .rc file is long, program crashes with message:

*** buffer overflow detected ***: xbindkeys-config terminated
======= Backtrace: =========
/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libc.so.6(__fortify_fail+0x65)[0xb7133105]
.....etc.

I try to solve it and recompile, it works for me now. I attach the modified source tree. Please look at changelog for details. I name it now with 0.1.3.1 version.

Thanks
