x11grab: fix a memory leak exposed by valgrind

When using "-f x11grab -i :0.0" valgrind reports a definitely lost
memory block with this message:

==31544== 5 bytes in 1 blocks are definitely lost in loss record 1 of 2
==31544==    at 0x4026E68: memalign (in /usr/lib/valgrind/
==31544==    by 0x4026F17: posix_memalign (in /usr/lib/valgrind/

==31544==    by 0x60D3A70: av_strdup (in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
==31544==    by 0x4A2BE58: ??? (in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
==31544==    by 0x506D29E: avformat_open_input (in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
==31544==    by 0x400A80: main (in /home/ao2/WIP/am7xxx-play/tests/a.out)

The 5 bytes lost are the ones from param = av_strdup(":0.0"), so let's
free param in the exit path.

Also check the av_strdup() return value.

Note: calling av_free(param) even when av_strdup() fails and param is
NULL is OK and keeps the code simpler without adding another label to
skip av_free().
