retitle 761473 libkexiv2-11: floating point exception on special mp4 videos

Hello again,

I finally found where the problem is coming from (well, kind of): I had downloaded mp4 files recorded on a Galaxy S with a CM11 firmware, and the files have a format which seems quite special, as vlc, avplay and mplayer have also their problem with those films BUT they don't crash!

Whereas digikam and gwenview both do crash on a directory with those files (and don't without them), meaning the issue is indeed rather at lib(k)exiv level. As the bug reports I referred to seem to hint at the fact that libkexiv is responsible for error handling, here we are!

I can share privately the offending files if someone is willing to fix the issue, which is less important than initially thought.

I hope all the bug control commands are correct...

Thanks, Eric

one last step for now:
the issue seems to be related to which
states that the issue is in libkexiv (with a K). Following, the issue is closed in
version 4.1.0.

But the bug is still there, and I'm confused...

Thanks, Eric

I installed gdb and was able to continue with the crash reporting
assistant which found similar KDE bugs: 332721, 331506 and 331450 (all
duplicates of each other, the last one seems to be the master bug).

Those bugs seem to imply that the issue is in Exiv2 shared lib,
especially in video metadata parser. This would mean that the bug should
be reassigned to package libexiv2-13, I guess, but it's difficult for me
to judge if the bug is really the same.

I also attach the backtrace of the crash.

Thanks, Eric
