There's a bug in exif-common.c where it decides not to create a new FileCache because a path is not readable, but later on it uses the FileCache NULL ptr to access the cache nevertheless. Source code analysis in above Fedora bugzilla ticket. One fix would be to create the cache before checking whether the file is readable.

Discussion

  • prevent NULL ptr crash as described in Fedora ticket

     
  • This is already fixed in master, git 8a55b69211b5866025f66c514f34ad697d3d1909
