Segmentation fault in ippsInflate_8u in zlib.

Hi,
I am trying to evaluate the IPP zlib implementation usingipp-samples_p_6.1.5.060 and IPP (both 6.1 and beta) . When trying to decompress a buffer in which 1 bit has been corrupted (I did this by randomly selecting a bit offset and XORing the data at that bit with itself), I see a segmentation fault in the function ippsInflate_8u. Is there something I can do as an immediate fix for this?
Lemme know if you need more info for fixing this.

Hi A

We will investigate the problem. Could you providea small test case will be help for locating the problem quickly?

In addition, there is some ipp zlibreported and fixed in IPP 7.0 version (which is in Beta update 3).
IPP 7.0 beta update 3 bug fix list: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-ipp-70-library-bug-fixes/

Please visit the Intel Software Evaluation Center to download evaluation versions of these and other Intel software products.

What's New in 7.0.2

  • Additional optimizations for the 256-bit Intel AVX SIMD instruction set.
  • Further Intel Atom Processor optimizations have been incorporated.
  • Data compression gains of ~2x via a redesign of the "Inflate for Fixed Huffman" algorithm.
  • Cryptography improvements include 1.4x faster "sign verify" and a 2x faster ippsMontForm() function.
  • The ipp_zlib library is now based on the zlib 1.2.5 distribution.
  • Review a complete list of changes, bug fixes and new features on-line.
