Part that fixes CVE-2006-5868 issue, from debian
Upstream's revision 4399 (which went into 6.2.9) changes SGIDecode quite
radically, possibly to address the issue. I wish they learned to write commit
messages. I mailed the upstream to get some more clue...
Upstream states that the flaw was corrected in 22.214.171.124.
Please close if ImageMagick-126.96.36.199-4.fc6 fixes this, otherwise push the fix. I
think rebasing would be the best thing to do here.
