Your subject proclaims that a call to the utf8 libray may cause heap
corruption, but your argument merely shows that a call to utf8_decode

The function is not exported. All the calls to it that can ever happen
are in lutf8lib.c. Moreover, at most four bytes of string o are examined,
there is no possibility of an indefinite loop.

Please show us that corruption string that you can build, and the
call to the utf8 library that then corrupts the heap. I don't believe you.
