Fix potential double-free() in Interactive Service (CVE-2018-9336)
Malformed input data on the service pipe towards the OpenVPN interactive service (normally used by the OpenVPN GUI to request openvpn instances from the service) can result in a double free() in the error handling code. This usually only leads to a process crash (DoS by an unprivileged local account) but since it could possibly lead to memory corruption if happening while multiple other threads are active at the same time, CVE-2018-9336 has been assigned to acknowledge this risk. Fix by ensuring that sud->directory is set to NULL in GetStartUpData() for all error cases (thus not being free()ed in FreeStartupData()). Rewrite control flow to use explicit error label for error exit. Discovered and reported by Jacob Baines <email@example.com>.
