I downloaded the following samples from the bug:

All four decode fine with ffmpeg and ffplay with above names.
If I rename the files to "data", the first three files still play fine, the
fourth and the fifth fail with both FFmpeg and the Qatar / Google fork.

While I completely agree that it would be nice if FFmpeg would simply skip valid
ID3 tags, I don't see a regression wrt to the mentioned fork.
