"File not found" for pir3upd.5703 is correct.  I have tried loading
non-existent files on purpose, and have no problem with this file on
it's own - actually, on my system, it doesn't matter if the file that
comes after pir2upd.5703 exists or not (I still get a segfault).

I am using version 5.1m of libwww and I'm compiling/running the code on
a system running Red Hat Linux 5.1 using gcc etc.  I do have access to a
Sun running Solaris 2.6 so perhaps I will try running it there.

Thanks a lot for your help!
