New submission from Amaury Forgeot d'Arc <amauryfa at gmail.com>:

The interpreter sometimes segfaults when running the test suite, in 
A more reliable crasher is:

>>> import imageop
>>> s = "A" * 32000
>>> imageop.rgb2rgb8(s, 1, len(s))

The failure was recently introduced by r66689, a "security fix" :-(
and backported today in 2.4!

This is a 2.4 release blocker. Patch is attached, please review.
