Whoops, sorry, forgot about those.  They're probably easier to just
reproduce, assuming you have inkscape installed:

cd /usr
tar -cf /tmp/inkscape.tar bin/inkscape
mkdir /tmp/bin
cp bin/inkview /tmp/bin/inkscape
cd /tmp
tar -cf inkview.tar bin/inkscape

Basically, I was just trying to generate files that would cause
diffoscope to run objdump on binaries that were big enough to give me
time to send a signal to cause the problem.  I have no reason to believe
there's anything special about these binaries to trigger the bug more
often or anything like that.
