Use CVE-2009-4227 for the read_1_3_textobject

I also assigned CVE-2009-4228 for a stack-consumption issue (NOT an overflow) in u_bound.c, associated with the readfp_fig function in f_read.c.

Stack-based buffer overflow in the read_1_3_textobject function in
f_readold.c in Xfig 3.2.5b and earlier, and in the read_textobject
function in read1_3.c in fig2dev in Transfig 3.2.5a and earlier,
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string in
a malformed .fig file that uses the 1.3 file format.  NOTE: some of
these details are obtained from third party information.

Reference: CONFIRM:https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=543905

Stack consumption vulnerability in u_bound.c in Xfig 3.2.5b and
earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a long string in a malformed .fig file that
uses the 1.3 file format, possibly related to the readfp_fig function
in f_read.c.
