GDAL 2.0 gdalinfo crashes on some PDF (one in Attachment), when compiled with PoDoFo Library. GDAL 1.11.2 compiled in the same way is working without problem.

Sorry, PDF file is larger than maximum size of attachment. Here is the link for PDF:

Which OS ? Which Podofo version ? I don't reproduce any problem on Linux 64 bit with Podofo 0.9.1. Can you run Valgrind and/or attach a gdb trace ?

@MikiBOB Interesting, it seems that it is the opening of vector layers that cause the crash. Are you sure that ogrinfo of GDAL 1.11 wouldn't crash on the file ? Might be a defect of podofo 0.9.0. I could probably defer the loading of vector layers.

Could you try running with Valgrind too ?

Summary: PDF driver crashes on some PDF with PoDoFo LibraryPDF driver of GDAL 2.0.0 crashes on some PDF with PoDoFo Library (specific to 0.9.0)

I can reproduce the issue with PoDoFo 0.9.0. It appears this specific version as a bug in the PdfMemStream.cpp file that existed neither in earlier or later version. So this version should be avoided

For reference, the diff between 0.9.0 and 0.9.1 is :
