> - Parse seek offsets as unsigned (why they were signed in the first
For some reason the ASF demux tries to seek to negative offsets. This seems to
be an integer overflow. At least, as far as I understand, the three different
places whereby it invokes stream_Seek() are not supposed to yield negative
offsets. Besides, negative offsets make absolutely no sense anyway.
I will not completely rule out that #1404 would actually be a bug in the
access_file mmap code, but it *very* much seems like an ASF bug revealed by
mmap. Needless to say, I have no idea how to fix this. As such, I have no
intention to dedicate any more of my time to this, pending further relevant
informations from someone else.
