Note that additional similar issue in mime_param_cmp was fixed in

This can also be triggered by malformed S/MIME message.
The above commit also corrects an issue with the previous mime_hdr_cmp
fix that could cause the function to return either "less than" or
"greater than" when comparing NULL to non-NULL. There's no known
security impact of this change, it seems it could cause verification /
decryption to fail when it can succeed. Reported by "bla".
Please use CVE-2012-1165 for this issue.
