Description Marcos Marado 2006-06-20 12:00:00 EDT
Description of problem:
When I use elinks to display some XML (like an RSS feed or something like that)
elinks freezes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Allways, in this machine. I have nowhere else to test it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open elinks on an webpage with a link to an RSS feed, for instance
2. follow the link for that feed
3. choose 'display' on the dialog box
Actual results:
elinks just freezes

Expected results:
to see the file as any other .txt file, and, specially, that the application
doesn't freeze.

Additional info:
The only way to quit from elinks when in that state is to kill -9 it. Since
upstream is already on 0.11.1, maybe updating will solve the issue.
