Yes - I can confirm it. I've got a fix from the old non-enhanced version, which
I'll tidy up and post. IIRC the problem is with the code that does the
extension checking - it splits the filename at the last dot that it finds,
and assumes everything after the dot is the extension (ie .html) which it
strcpy's into a fairly small string array.
So you won't have the problem if you're indexing files like
but you will get seg faults if you're looking at
I'll dig out and post a patch tomorrow.
