If there is any buffer overflow, then the program is screwed anyway. So can there be any case which is "non-exploitable"?
I mean, you may not be able to run arbitrary code with a carefully crafted buffer, but causing it to crash counts as denial of service.
Further, any example would be highly specific to a given implementation, and likely to be patched before most people are aware that it even existed.
