Package: libfile-stripnondeterminism-perl
Version: 0.012-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

there seems to be a bug in the png handler of stripnondeterminism,
when run on armhf.
When running dh_strip_nondetermism on a simple PNG file from the xfig
I get the following result on armhf:

dh_strip_nondeterminism: ./symbol-chars-upper.png: Negative length at 
/home/roland/perllib/File/StripNondeterminism/handlers/ line 66.

This doesn't happen to all PNG files, but to some of them, I'm not
fully sure, what exactly triggers it.

Since this makes the build of xfig non-reproducible on armhf
I'd be happy if you could fix this.

BTW: This PNG file isn't automatically build, so so there is no need
to strip nondeterminism at all from it...

To test only this problem, I extracted a minimal test code from
dh_strip_nondeterminism, which accepts a PNG file as first parameter.
This test code is attached.
