Re: pkg/45026 (libpng crashes in links -g and other browsers)

Dear David,

The self-compiled and now working version of links-gui is:

Links 2.3pre1

- Which the previous failing version was I no longer know as I have replaced it

png is reported as:

If you need any further information, please let me know.

Thank you very much for your help with this issue and kind regards,
