Proposed fix

Description of problem:
The ReadEmbeddedTextTag (src/cmsio1.c) expects wchar_t to be 16 bits long, but it can be 32 bits long (on 64 bit machines) which can cause read of multiple uninitialized values. It shouldn't happen, but it is probably harmless in this case (I didn't analyse the possible consequences more deep).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. valgrind geeqie test.svg   # with ICC activated

Actual results:
==9154== Conditional jump or move depends on uninitialised value(s)
==9154==    at 0x53F2345: wcsnlen (wcsnlen.c:33)
==9154==    by 0x53F1CBF: wcsrtombs (wcsrtombs.c:109)
==9154==    by 0x53899C0: wcstombs (wcstombs.c:34)

==9154==    by 0x380061457C: cmsTakeProductName (cmsio1.c:2184)
==9154==    by 0x43CA31: color_man_get_profile_name (color-man.c:428)
==9154==    by 0x43CCBD: color_man_get_status (color-man.c:446)
==9154==    by 0x46A607: layout_image_color_profile_get_status (layout_image.c:1145)
==9154==    by 0x46EE57: layout_util_sync_color (layout_util.c:2313)
==9154==    by 0x463A0E: layout_status_update_image (layout.c:534)
==9154==    by 0x4588F5: image_change_pixbuf (image.c:91)

Expected results:
No messages about uninitialized values.

Additional info:
The same problem is probably in rawhide.

The proposed fix is attached. Probably the better fix (but less compatible) would be to use char16_t from the 2011 revision of the standard.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:42:34 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
