Subject: FreeType malformed compressed data issue

I'm processing CVE-2009-0946 for the various integer overflows found by
Tavis Ormandy for FreeType, as captured in:

But there's also this commit:

This bug doesn't smell exactly like an integer overflow, but there's not
enough immediate context to tell.  Is this a different bug type?  If so,
it needs a new CVE.
