mp3lib has been disabled and since some time even removed because of issues like this.
The suggestion is to use either FFmpeg's decoder or an external one like libmpg123 (which is basically the mp3lib code with lots of fixes).
If recompiling with mp3lib disabled is undesireable this can be achieved by e.g. installing a /etc/codecs.conf that does not contain the "mp3lib" entry.
If the concern is only about playback but not security, adding "ac=ffmp3," to the MPlayer config should avoid it as well.
Since the affected code no longer exists in SVN, we will not fix it.
