I tried contacting the w3m developers listed on sourceforge but got no response. In the default configuration the missing null checks don't make the situation worse though as w3m doesn't verify certificates by default ('ssl_verify_server' is off by default). Attached two patches turn on 'ssl_verify_server' and fix the null handling. cu Ludwig -- (o_ Ludwig Nussel //\ V_/_ http://www.suse.de/ SUSE LINUX Products GmbH, GF: Markus Rex, HRB 16746 (AG Nuernberg) View attachment "w3m-0.5.2-ssl_verify_server_on.diff" of type "text/x-patch" (920 bytes) View attachment "w3m-0.5.2-nulcn.diff" of type "text/x-patch" (1632 bytes)
