Ok, I was sloppy and didn't run the tests before I merged this. It turns out
we have test 569 that verifies that we don't accept spaces as part of the RTSP
session id. Like this:

   Session: \$extraspaces ignore-this-part-------;foo=bar

So, do you think we should fix the test and allow the entire string to be the
session (including spaces) or should we fix the code and also stop the parsing
at the first space?
