An endless loop in the libglu

libglu (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This library contain function GotoState() in the src/glu/sgi/libtess/tess.c file. It is possible to enter an endless loop in this function due to incorrect usage of libglu functions because switch() statements in this function doesn't check for all possible values and there is no error processing under "default" labels. I've encountered this bug by using some Windows applications running under wine 1.6.
