Reading XPM files or data with more than 256 colors was broken.
It could write data to arbitrary memory addresses.

This bug existed since version 0.17.0. Earlier versions did not support more than 256 at all.
It is fixed in AKFAvatar-0.23.0.

Note: XPM files with more than 256 colors become very large, so it's not a good idea to use them anyway. That's also the reason, why I haven't seen this bug earlier.
