You'll be glad to know that it isn't a clocc issue, it seems to be something
lower level and odder. For example, "lynx -head http://slashdot.org/" hangs
in a similar way (although not when pointing at other sites). As I've said
before, other methods of downloading (wget, Netscape) work fine. Yet, at the
same time, w3m and lynx fail along with my clocc based code.

I think despair is a long way off, I mean, it's only slashdot and some silly
code I like to amuse myself with. <g>

Sadly, in this case, there's no "Mozilla" to restart.
Anyway, sorry for the bogus "heads up".
