jasper: NULL pointer dereference in jpc_tsfb_synthesize (jpc_tsfb.c)

Description:
jasper is an open-source initiative to provide a free software-based reference implementation of the codec specified in the JPEG-2000 Part-1 standard.

Another round of fuzzing on an updated version (1.900.5) revealed another NULL pointer access

The complete ASan output:

# imginfo -f $FILE
warning: trailing garbage in marker segment (14 bytes)
warning: not enough tile data (15 bytes)
warning: bad segmentation symbol
warning: bad segmentation symbol
ASAN:DEADLYSIGNAL
