	When one chooses "save link as", or is forced to save a file (say,
	a PDF without a plugin for it), phoenix will happily save the
	file... and then quit cleanly (no core dump, as if you'd selected
	"Quit" from the File menu).

	I haven't even looked to see if this is our fault or upstream.
	Looks like phoenix uses pthreads, so it could well be our
	implementation mishandling some communication between threads.
	Load a web page with links to anything in phoenix 0.5 built from
	NetBSD pkgsrc, right click a link, select "Save link as...", click
	okay (or save, whatever) in the resulting dialog.
	No clue. pthreads smell fishy.

	Workaround: "Copy link location" and use pkgsrc/net/wget
