Segmentaion fault using vulkan decoder on Windows with NVIDIA

I'm currently experiencing a segmentation fault error when attmepting to use Vulkan as a video decoder as part of the following project:

After some debugging with the developers I've been directed here as it seems to be some upstream issue relating to ffmpeg itself. The discussion can be found here:

For debugging I've specifically checked out the n6.1.1 tag to create my debug build.

The segmentation fault occurs after calling avcodec_send_packet with the content of the received frame.

I'm currently using an NVIDIA RTX 3080 with driver version 551.23 on the latest updates of Windows 11.

I have the following stack trace:

Applying the following patch seems to resolve the segmentation fault crash without creating any additional issue in the context of the application ffmpeg is being used in:

I'm not particularly able to replicate this crash in other applications utilising ffmpeg, such as mpv or even the ffmpeg command line tool itself.

Same issue on Linux, with mpv, coredump shows the following:

I can confirm that vulkan decoding is also broken in GNU/Linux currently, at least when using the latest NVIDIA proprietary driver. A segmentation fault occurs. I think that the title could be updated to reflect this.

Vulkan filters are working fine.

Same result with ffmpeg git master and 6.1.1.

Example command:

$ ffmpeg -init_hw_device vulkan=dGPU:0 -hwaccel vulkan -hwaccel_output_format vulkan -hwaccel_device dGPU -i '200 IQ Husky Climbs Ladder To Board Boat [n5jf9PpZzGY].mp4' -vf 'hwdownload,format=nv12,format=yuv420p' -an -c:v libx264 test-out.mp4
