The hotlist gets truncated when it fails to save one of the entries.
Since hotlist load/save was ported from libxml to libdom it has failed
to handle HTML entities. So the hotlist will get truncated before the
first entry to contain an "unusual" character.
Looking at the Hotlist files posted by Richard Torrens, the entry which
caused the truncation was (on one line):
••▷ East Anglia Free ads, East Anglia classifieds,
East Anglia FREE CLASSIFIED ADS, 450,000+ free classifieds in the
A possible temporary workaround would be to edit each title, in the
Hotlist window, to remove 'unusual' characters - in this case
••▷ - before quitting NetSurf (so saving the file).
