The wcsnrtombs function in all musl libc versions up through 1.2.1
has been found to have multiple bugs in handling of destination
buffer size when limiting the input character count, which can
lead to infinite loop with no forward progress (no overflow) or

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your musl packages.
