Well I've now tried with ALFS-0.0.7 from cvs, and confirmed it is the same
version I've been using. I still get the problem with and without the
patch, so since it works for you I'd say we're barking up the wrong
proverbial tree. Which version of expat, XML::Parser and XML::Twig are you
using ? Would anyone mind if I tried cleaning up the backend/frontend code
a bit ?
