Default ImageMagick Bug

Hello,

I am experience a segfault while trying to use convert between svg and png.

I suspect that the bug I am experiencing is identical to this one:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=472253

I can try the suggested patch myself, but is this the kind of thing that
maybe could be patched in CentOS plus repository until RHEL has an
approved patch? The report looks several years old yet there still isn't
one, which isn't a good sign.

The issue I'm dealing with, on my web site I am moving a lot of the
currently gd generated dynamic png images to svg but since not all
browsers support svg, I need to convert from svg to png for a fallback.

I suspect I'm not the only one who wants to do this sort of thing, so
segfault in convert from svg to gif/png is really something that
probably should have a fix readily available.

I'm running CentOS 5.x

The patch is for gnome-vfs2, not imagemagick.
I'm guessing that makes it a much stickier proposition since a lot of
stuff uses gnome-vfs2.

For what it is worth, I'm with running the gnome-vfs2 patch in the
bugzilla and convert from svg to whatever works fine w/o segfaulting. It
actually completes the conversion before the segfault w/o the patch, the
segfault seems to happen when convert exits.

Looks like it might be in next rhel update (5.5) anyway, don't quite
understand why they do not push it now.
