Fix patch, corrects VBR_HEADER_MAX_SIZE

Full bug with fix explained on this thread:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/id3lib3.8.3/+bug/444466

As it stands, the stable id3lib version crashes when used on VBR files, and this causes segmentation faults on any program that relies on this lib on said files (like easytag).

Where does this package come from? I don't see it in the main tree.
Comment 2 Walther 2017-11-20 01:33:08 UTC
Argh, my bad. The package name is media-libs/id3lib/id3lib-3.8.3-r8.ebuild, I wrote it backwards :S
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-08-18 09:14:25 UTC
Fix from upstream tracker: https://sourceforge.net/p/id3lib/patches/61/
Comment 4 Thomas 2018-09-01 19:02:02 UTC
This is a duplicate of bug 398571 from 2012 (which somehow was never confirmed or fixed in the portage tree).
