Reported by Daniel Hobe:

Recently I imported some photos edited in another program (Lightzone) and the jpegs would reliably crash Exiv2 with a segfault. This was in digikam, but I can reproduce the problem with the exiv2 command line tool.

Are you interested in taking a look at the image (or more specifically
the exif data)? Anything else I can do to help?

Machine Details:
Distro: Ubuntu Dapper Drake
exiv2 version 0.10

Additional information:

The images have a corrupted IFD0 next pointer.
The remaining Exif data is incomplete and also apparently messed up, it has Exif tags in IFD0.
