--- Comment #1 from Antonio Larrosa <alarrosa@xxxxxxxx> ---
Note that our libav package has this in %prep:
rm -Rf libavcodec libavdevice libavfilter libavformat libavresample libavutil

And then the ffmpeg libraries are used to generate only the libav-tools

I tested the poc file from
in Leap 15.0 and TW. In both cases, error messages are shown and no infinite
loop is entered, so we don't seem to be affected:

avconv version 12.3, Copyright (c) 2000-2018 the Libav developers
built on Mar 26 2018 12:39 with gcc 9 (SUSE Linux)
[wv @ 0x55d6a4e6e700] Could not find codec parameters for stream 0 (Audio:
wavpack, 9600 Hz, 0 channels): unspecified sample format
Consider increasing the value for the 'analyzeduration' and 'probesize' options
Input #0, wv, from '/home/antonio/Downloads/pocc':

Stream #0:0: Audio: wavpack, 9600 Hz, 0 channels
Unable to find a suitable output format for '/dev/null'

So I suggest marking this as resolved/invalid
