Files geeqie is crashing with
Description of problem:
When I run geeqie in some directory, which contains "evil files", it is killed by SIGSEGV.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir test; cd test
2. unpack the attached archive here
3. run geeqie various times
The geeqie crashes in most cases. In some cases it shows the svg file, but it shows non-senses.
The geeqie runs normally and shows the first picture of the directory.
This bug surely is close relative to bz607979. I can reproduce the crash also with the file attached to the bug bz607979. I didn't clone it, because the component of bz607979 had been changed to something else.
Also affects other components, such as GNOME Shell:
With Fedora 19 x86_64, I've had to try the test-case a dozen times before Geeqie would freeze. Minutes later ABRT caught a segfault: bug 977517
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

^^^ This bug _surely_ persists also on the newer versions of Fedora (see cited comment #1 by Michael Schwendt), so it shouldn't be closed because of being reported on some older Fedora.
