I'll try to investigate that, thanks.

Well, unhistory apparently has some problems and I'm going to review this stuff
before making elinks-0.3 STABLE (unhistory isn't in elinks-0.2). The only other
thing I believe may have some serious problems is partial rewrite of DNS
lookups and IPv6 support.

By the way, hobbes binary is VERY old (Jan 1) - this segfault was fixed as well
as coredumps on quit and many other things.

Fine, many thanks.

OBTW I merged almost everything (each of us removed different occurence of the
double 0x0d bug ;] - i kept the my one) into elinks-0.3 and I'm going to
probably put at least most urgent bugfixes to elinks-0.2 as well.

Oh, and now I see 0.97pre2 out! ;)
