Gustavo Grieco discovered several flaws in the way librsvg, a SAX-based
renderer library for SVG files, parses SVG files with circular

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.40.5-1+deb8u2.

For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
