On 9 Sep 2005, before reading James' post above, I downloaded
Netsurf (07 Sep 2005 20:30) and found that the 1.51MB file
apparently displayed correctly. I also tried another problematic
long file, which was also seemed to be ok. I assumed that the
problem had been fixed, and sent my posting of 9 Sep 2005, to
confirm that all was well. (Next time, fetch before send!)

Having seen from James' post, above, that the problem had not
been identified, I reverted to Netsurf (22 Aug 2005 23:01) to
confirm that the problem existed for that build, which it did.

I then returned to Netsurf (07 Sep 2005 20:30), only to find
that the problem has now affects that build too!

I have tried loading a new copy of Netsurf immediately after a
clean boot, but the problem persists, and I do not understand
how, initially, the build of (07 Sep 2005 20:30) displayed the
problematic files correctly.

In short, the problem has not been fixed, and I am sending the
stderr to James, as requested.
