This issue was discovered in the fuzzed files at http://bugs.ghostscript.com/show_bug.cgi?id=695040 :

If the Postscript stream contains a broken number-with-base (e.g. "8#garbage") the cursor doesn't advance and parse_encoding enters an infinite loop.

Proposed fix: https://code.google.com/p/sumatrapdf/source/browse/trunk/ext/_patches/freetype2.patch?spec=svn8620&r=8620#74
