if you are using fedora core 2 or 3 with automatic updates installed,
be prepared for lots of warnings during indexing with swish-e.
The evil geniuses at xmlsoft.org changed all conversion functions to no
longer return 0 on success (as before and still ducumented), but to
return the number of bytes processed instead. This also affects
UTF8Toisolat1(), which swish-e uses for its internal conversion.
As a result, swish-e (I checked only 2.4.2) spews lots of warnings about
failed conversions although they went fine.
The rationale for the API change is described here:
Extremely trivial (and therefore yet untested) patch against cvs below.
