aom_image.c in libaom in AOMedia before 2021-04-07 frees memory that is not located on the heap.

Comment 1 Pedro Sampaio 2021-05-17 19:14:43 UTC
Created aom tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-all [bug 1961377]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1961376]

Comment 2 Robert-André Mauchin 🐧 2021-05-17 20:17:53 UTC
I'm in the process of updating AOM to version 3.1.1, when it is released.

I am also considering waiting for libjxl to be packaged and for its dependency highway to have its remaining bugs fixed (hopefully within the next two weeks).
libjxl provides the tune=butteraugli function.
