Comment 5 Tomas Hoger 2017-03-14 14:29:46 UTC
This problem can only be reproduced with Jasper versions including this upstream commit:


It was first included in upstream version 1.900.25.  Earlier versions do not seem to be affected.  The following assertion is raised in the earlier versions:

imginfo: jas_seq.c:90: jas_seq2d_create: Assertion `xstart <= xend && ystart <= yend' failed.
