I use lrzip to compress backups. I recently had a few crashed. The crash is repeatable when
decompressing stdin. Here is an example run:

$ lrzip -t vms.tar.lrz
100%      83.88 /     83.88 GB
Average DeCompression Speed: 28.144MB/s
[OK] - 90067507200 bytes
Total time: 00:50:53.00

Good, now through stdin:

$ cat vms.tar.lrz | lrzip -tf -
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

dmesg shows:

lrzip[13579]: segfault at 7f31b76d3000 ip 000000000040ed58 sp 00007fff878124e0 error 6 in lrzip[400000+41000]

The archive was created with

$ TMP="/backup/room" lrzip -b vms.tar

This is on fedora 22 (latest and up-to-date).

Any suggestions?
