Description: 
 gs-esp     - The Ghostscript PostScript interpreter - ESP version
Changes: 
 gs-esp (7.07.1-9ubuntu5) breezy; urgency=low
 .
   * Fix coredumping bug on ppc: Ubuntu bugzilla:
      http://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13771
     This is the same issue as
      http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=687643
      http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=687730
     discussed in
      http://ghostscript.com/pipermail/gs-code-review/2004-September/004649.html
     and probably the same as Debian bug #324796 and perhaps others in
     Debian's gs-esp.
 .
     This bug is due to gs's incorrect assumption that (where ref is an
     important struct inside gs) sizeof(ref) % alignof(jmp_buf) == 0.  This
     is not true on ppc and apparently not necessarily on Itanium either.
 .
     The `fix' I have applied is to wrap setjmp/longjmp up in macros which
     arrange for jmp_buf to have alignment 1, as sketched out in the URLs
     above.  A previous attempt to fix it by padding ref out to the
     alignment of jmp_buf failed and I don't know why; but I suspect other
     unjustified assumptions in gs.
 .
     GhostScript's algorithms ought to be repaired not to assume
     falsehoods.
