As that packet is stuck at the head of the processing queue, no packets after it could be processed. The workaround was to do some packet filtering, and filter the packets until you could upgrade the version of IOS.
What I've seen about addressing this bug in Cisco routers is opaque to this particular dummy. Cisco lays out this information in a logical, easy to understand manner. Not exactly.
When the world will be better.
