Catalog.cc in Xpdf 4.02 has a NULL pointer dereference because Catalog.pageLabels is initialized too late in the Catalog constructor.

Weakness

A NULL pointer dereference occurs when the application dereferences a pointer that it expects to be valid, but is NULL, typically causing a crash or exit.
