The interpreter sometimes segfaults when running the test suite, in 
A more reliable crasher is:

>>> import imageop
>>> s = "A" * 32000
>>> imageop.rgb2rgb8(s, 1, len(s))

The failure was recently introduced by r66689, a "security fix" :-(
and backported today in 2.4!

This is a 2.4 release blocker. Patch is attached, please review.

Ooops. That's why I asked for one or more reviewers :-)

Of course I uploaded the wrong patch. Trying again.

Looks good.

When I wrote my patch to fix division by zero (and detection of -n 
* -n overflow), I also wrote a script to test imageop module. I fixed 
the limit of the input string to 1024 bytes, and so the rgb crash was 
not detected. Here is my script with a limit of 2^20 bytes which raise 
the crash. With the patch, there are no more crash ;-)
