When calling read_exif_data with a picture taken with a Kodak DC240 it causes PHP to crash. (This error is probably related to bug #14026)

It seems to be caused to the (mis-)reading of the thumbnail-info from the exif-tag. After changing the ext/exif.c and removing the cases TAG_JPEGQUAL and TAG_MACRO at line 760-779, the read_exif_data runs without any problems - But then (of course) it only read the data about the picture and not the thumbnail.

To reproduce call read_exif_data with any photo taken with a Kodak DC240

I've been strugling with this issue for some time, also on FreeBSD 4.4-stable. The bug still exists in CVS as of today. I can also conform that removing TAG_JPEGQUAL and TAG_MACRO fixes the problem.

I had it working ok when reading one file from a DC4800.  Tried to open 10 in a row and I got the following error in the apache log file for each file:

FATAL:  emalloc():  Unable to allocate -2147483648 bytes

FreeBSD 4.5, PHP 4.1.1

I get the same problem reported here. It doesn't break on all my images. Just certain ones (all taken with the same camera.)

Apache logs:
FATAL:  emalloc():  Unable to allocate -2147483648 bytes

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

Original version was not really standard complient...

Hope i fixed all. But i implemented a test mechanism and
it works with all files from now.
