Subject: Large amount of uninitialized values in svg parsing and processing


A large amount of uninitialized values in the parsing and processing of svg
files using librsvg and related libraries (e.g, libcairo) are causing
undefined behaviors. Some of these issues are originated in librsvg, some
in libcairo and others (libpixman maybe). Some relevant technical details
are available here:

As a result of this, just browsing svg files using the open dialog of
Firefox/Chromium can lead to unexpected or undefined behavior. Other
applications using librsvg are likely affected.
