drda-info uses up all my memory when I run this command:

against this server:

      ncat -lk -v 50000 --sh-exec "echo foo"

Good catch, I can reproduce it.  My Nmap process grew to more than a
gigabyte in seconds (then I quit with ^C).  At least drda-info is not
in default category.  I'll add this to Nmap TODO now.
