Fix patch, corrects VBR_HEADER_MAX_SIZE

Full bug with fix explained on this thread:

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

This is a duplicate of bug 398571 from 2012 (which somehow was never confirmed or fixed in the portage tree).
