Furthermore: upstream is not able to reproduce the problem as well
The problem result in a memory allocation issue when compiled with ASAN
but unreproducible from unstream. Since no more details can be provided
and the issue not addressed, treat this as "non-issue" (and thus marked
unimportant). If in future details can be elaborated by the reporter
we might re-evaluate this entry.
