Buffer overflow reports by AddressSanitizer

Issue #68 invalid
Former user created an issue


AddressSanitizer (https://code.google.com/p/address-sanitizer/) reports a possible buffer overflow issue here:


If scd->last_byte < 2 then we are potentially accessing memory that is out of bounds. I'm not familiar enough with the code to decide what needs to be done if this happens.

    Line 386, if flag is set, is the only case where last_byte < 2 but it immediately returns afterwards.

    Later on line 406, last_byte can only be greater than 2 (2+count is used in both assignments).

    It seems that line 399 has to be executed before getting to line 406. So when it gets to line 399 the first time, scd->last_byte = 0, right?

    Maybe I'm missing something?
