[jessie] - jasper <postponed> (Code appears to work correctly but wait for more information)
This issue is reproducible with ASAN, however without ASAN the guard,
introduced with the fix for CVE-2014-8138, works as expected and
jasper terminates properly. Still I am going to mark this bug as
postponed until we receive feedback from upstream.
[wheezy] - jasper <postponed> (probably a false-positive)
