Description Andrej Nemec 2016-02-26 04:10:09 EST
The proxy contains a String object class with 64KB content limits.
Some code paths do not bounds check before appending to these String
and overflow leads to an assertion which terminates all client
transactions using the proxy, including those unrelated to the limit
being exceeded.
