  OTP-14440    Application(s): asn1
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-220

               A bug in ASN.1 BER decoding has been fixed. When
               decoding a recursively enclosed term the length was not
               propagated to that term decoding, so if the length of
               the enclosed term was longer than the enclosing that
               error was not dectected.

               A hard coded C stack limitation for decoding recursive
               ASN.1 terms has been introduced. This is currently set
               to 8 kWords giving a nesting depth of about 1000
               levels. Deeper terms can not be decoded, which should
               not be much of a real world limitation.
