      Description

      Signs with some special (possibly corrupted) characters on them will cause the client to freeze and possibly crash.

      For example, if the data `CgpQCqA35sI=` (base64-encoded because it contains non-printable characters) appears in a sign's `Text` NBT tag, the client will freeze and be unable to do anything except moving around.

      This bug was discovered on a world created by a third party server.

      I have verified that this bug does not happen in 1.8, this bug is 1.9-specific.
