Description of problem:
Taglib requires an update to 1.4 to prevent crashes in various audio players on certain tagged files (e.g. with some ID3 PIC tags). I've experienced this in amarok (which is in Extras): rebuilding with debugging enabled and backtrace:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Having rebuilt from spec file for taglib 1.4, these errors went away. The rebuild from the Extras spec seemed trivial enough to me.

I'm told this bug in 1.3.x may show itself in various other players too on certain tags.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start amarok with taglib 1.3 installed
2. Play an mp3 with a PIC tag (unsure of specifics for crash, but common)
3. Amarok crashes with above backtrace

Actual Results:  Crash and above backtrace.

Expected Results:  Continues to play.

I've updated taglib to version 1.4, it should arrive in Extras soon
