I see what made its way in your code and your changelog. As far as I
can see nothing contradicts description above.

1) You are maintainer of that code.
2) Couple of minutes of reading through it is enough to find a new hole.
3) There are dozens of such holes.
4) They had been there for years.


You either can't see that stuff at all or you don't bother to spend even
minimal time looking for bugs.

See the problem with that situation?
