Subject: kiwi shell meta char injection

my colleagues found the following:

CVE-2011-3180: The path of overlay files was not escaped which allowed
shell meta character injection via the chown(1) command-line.
CVE-2011-4195: The image name was not escaped properly and can be used
in conjunction with other applications to execute arbitrary shell
