Package: php5-xmlrpc
Version: 5.3.1-4
Severity: important

When decoding a xml-rpc request which is valid xml but doesn't have the
expected tags, xmlrpc_decode_request generates a segmentation fault. The
code below reproduces this:

$req = '<?xml version="1.0"?>
    $result = xmlrpc_decode_request( $req, $frop );

xmlrpc_decode does work and simply returns NULL.
