Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2017-12-06 10:42:47 UTC
Reported upstream via:


Provided reproducer does not trigger abort in jasper packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7.  The first upstream version where abort is triggered is 1.900.23.  This issue also remains unfixed in the current upstream version 2.0.14.
