attacker could create a malicious JAR file which, if unpacked using
fastjar, could write to any files the victim had write access to.

* two debug information generator bugs
* two internal compiler errors
In addition to this, protoize.1 and unprotoize.1 manual pages have been
added to the package and __cxa_get_exception_ptr@@CXXABI_1.3.1 symbol has
been added into libstdc++.so.6.
