I have severe trouble with libwww crashing with certain pages. My client
crashes with some pages when doing a GET. By debugging I found out that the
crash actually occurs within libwww. I tries the webbot, that comes with the
library, but this bot also crashes.

I am using SunOS 5.5.1 and gcc. Please, I spent a lot of time with searching
for errors, and I'd appreciate any suggestions!
