[CentOS] ImageMagick Bug

I am experience a segfault while trying to use convert between svg and png.

I suspect that the bug I am experiencing is identical to this one:


I can try the suggested patch myself, but is this the kind of thing that 
maybe could be patched in CentOS plus repository until RHEL has an 
approved patch? The report looks several years old yet there still isn't 
one, which isn't a good sign.

The issue I'm dealing with, on my web site I am moving a lot of the 
currently gd generated dynamic png images to svg but since not all 
browsers support svg, I need to convert from svg to png for a fallback.

I suspect I'm not the only one who wants to do this sort of thing, so 
segfault in convert from svg to gif/png is really something that 
probably should have a fix readily available.

I'm running CentOS 5.x
