Description Marc Stern 2016-07-07 11:21:13 UTC
In apr_iconv_euc_convert_to_ucs(), the variable 'ptr' may be uninitialized on line 177.

1. There could be a real problem
2. In case the flows ensure that it is initialized, it should be explicit because a modification could break this
3. It generates a warning on some compilers
4. Safe compilers options may prevent the build (ex: /SDL in Visual C++)
