Subject: Re: CVE request: out-of-bounds write with cpio 2.11

I can't actually reproduce this on Debian, which runs 2.11 all the way
back to squeeze:

(gdb) run -i < ../overflow.cpio
Starting program: /bin/cpio -i < ../overflow.cpio
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
Using host libthread_db library
/bin/cpio: Malformed number0000000
/bin/cpio: warning: skipped 8 bytes of junk
/bin/cpio: Substituting `.' for empty member name
/bin/cpio: . not created: newer or same age version exists
/bin/cpio: premature end of file
[Inferior 1 (process 191) exited with code 02]

Did i miss something?
