Owen Jacobson commented on DIRMINA-454:

Oh, and by "trivial" I mean "run the following"

(while true; do echo -n yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy; done) | nc host port

and watch the JVM fall over.

> In both of TextLineDecoder's decoding methods, the decoder only checks the size of input
after it's found at least one line ending character.  Infinitely long streams of, say, 'y's
will cause the decoder to try to buffer up data until the JVM falls over.
