Package: Xdialog
Version: 2.0.6-3
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

    Xdialog --menubox "rotation angle?" 0 0 0 \
        ""  "erase picture" \
        0   "don't rotate" \
        90  "clockwise" \
        180 "flip over" \
        270 "anticlock"
makes the "erase picture" option grayed out.  If I click on it, my
system becomes unresponsive for five minutes while all 2.5 GB
memory+swap are allocated.  However, the crash is a segfault rather
than "memory exhausted."

If the option is " " rather than "" there is no problem.

Trivial input sanitization is in order here.
