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
