HTAnchor.c delete_family() bug (4.1b3a)

The first line of libwww 4.1b3a HTAnchor.c delete_family() in
dereferences the "me" anchor pointer to get the parent anchor pointer. 
Next is a trace statement, followed by a check to see if the "me"
pointer is NULL!

	Clearly, the check of the "me" pointer should take place before
dereferencing it.  I don't know if this problem exists in versions
beyond 4.1b3a.
