Description (last modified by warmerdam)

GRIB driver asserts (crashes) on opening this dataset. The "nSectSize" is a large number, and the memory allocation fails.

        memcpy( &nSectSize, abyHead, 4 );
        CPL_MSBPTR32( &nSectSize );

        if( VSIFSeekL( poDS->fp, nSectSize-5, SEEK_CUR ) != 0
            || VSIFReadL( abyHead, 5, 1, poDS->fp ) != 1 )

The file works fine on my 64bit workstation but does fail with an error in CPLMalloc() allocated 1.9GB on a 32bit windows build.

Digging further.

The problem turns out to be that the PDS scanning logic in gribdataset.cpp assumed that the file was GRIB2, but GRIB1 files use a different byte ordering for section sizes. The correction is to only scan for PDS templates with GRIB 2 files. Applied in trunk (r16455) and 1.6 branch (r16456).

I have also added a minimal test with this sample file in the autotest suite (r16457).
