The above turned out to be a little bit of a lie, after more careful
inspection (and actually creating samples to reproduce the issue in
practice (and not just in my head)), the patch which this thread is
about correctly stops parsing on the malformed files.

See the below for more information:

The applied (merged) fix is still stuck in an infinite loop.
