#987: Bad handling of Inf values in GEOS
 Reporter:  pramsey  |       Owner:  pramsey

 Priority:  medium   |   Milestone:  PostGIS 1.5.3

 Older versions of GEOS (pre 3.3) will loop infinitely when handed some
 coordinates with Inf values in them. Proj4 sometimes generates those
 values. The solution (?) in this case is to patch PostGIS to not pass the
 values through to GEOS.
