[bug-gv] gv crash for a certain bounding box

  Dear maintainers of GNU gv,

 I experienced a bug with gv version 3.6.1 on Linux Ubuntu 5.04 (AMD
Athlon 64 computer), Mac OS X 10.3.9 (gv version from the "fink" porting
system, PowerPC computer) and gv version 3.5.8 on SunOS 5.8 (Ultra Sparc
computer). On the PowerPC computer I get a "bus error" and on the Ultra
Sparc and intel-like computer a segmentation fault.

 The bug is triggered when the Bounding Box of the to-be-viewed PostScript
file is: "0 0 499 709" (this is specific to these values, for instance for
710 instead of 709 everything is fine). To reproduce it, it suffices to
write the following to lines into a .ps file:
%%BoundingBox: 0 0 499 709
and to launch gv on the file.

 Thank you for your kind attention,

  Christophe Deroulers
