Description David Lawrence 2005-03-30 23:29:02 UTC
Problems described in
affect w3m browser too.  On 'gallery' samples from
w3m responds with  (there is a pause between the first and the second message)

Out of Memory!  Returning NIL!
Segmentation fault

for 'links_die1.html'. The reaction is the same for w3m-0.3.1-4.7x.1
from RH7.3 and w3m-0.5.1-4 from FC3test so likely this will show up 
in-between too. :-)  Other samples from the same source do not cause
troubles but who knows what else will.

Later versions of w3m may have _more_ troubles of that sort.  RH bugzilla ref:

for tracking these issues in general.

FWIW, Red Hat has not released updates on this.

This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.
