We did make an unreleased fix (Mercurial changeset 14953:38d0f281e8c8, and earlier changeset 14831:28c0bb8bf89a), but perhaps not the way you like. The fix which was made was to require that the embedded JPEG data has the same dimensions as the containing JNG file. The existing resource limit mechanism would then allow the user to constrain the size of the JNG image. The default constraints in a 64-bit build are larger than what the JPEG format supports. It does not seem correct to change the default limits of the software in order to make fuzzing easier.
