realrtsp: fixed crash on unsuccessful DESCRIBE-response that includes `Alert`

If the remote server yields an error on the `DESCRIBE` request, while
also including an error message the module would crash due to an invalid

% netcat -l -p 8080 <<EOF
> RTSP/1.0 200 OK
> CSeq: 1
> Server: Real
> RealChallenge1: DEADBEEF
> RTSP/1.0 199 OK
> CSeq: 2
> Alert: I like turtles

The reason being that `alert` will point to the middle of allocated
memory. Given the sourroundings the original author probably forgot to
`strdup` the message - even though that is very unnecessary.
