Also, we've analyzed the bug and the worse possible behaviour we could
find was causing a *read* access up to around 60 kB past the end of the
compressed packet data. So the worse possible outcome would be to crash
the decoder, but this can only be achieved with a file that's at least
~16 MB, and even then only on a few decoders on which the memory after
the packet data isn't mapped.
