Last version of Gwenview segfaults when trying to open some jpeg images. Other applications like GIMP and Okular works as expected.

I tried to resize, save, remove EXIF and XMP meta and change compression parameters when editing the file in GIMP, the problem remains in saved images, as long as they remain jpeg.

Additional info:
up to date ArchLinux with Gwenview 17.04.3-2

Gwenview log:
peuc@sz6:tmp$ gwenview IMGP9770.JPG
qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin
qt5ct: D-Bus global menu: no
Warning: Directory Pentax, entry 0x0004: Data area exceeds data buffer, ignoring it.
Erreur de segmentation (core dumped)

Steps to reproduce:
- Download original image (taken with a Pentax camera):
- Try to open it in gwenview
This task depends upon

Looks like a bug in exiv2. For reference, it's been reported upstream here: .

Upstream said "I hope to submit the fix today" and that was on August 8, consider pinging them on their bugtracker about the status of the fix.
