Finding links is rather fast, but testing unknown 
links may take some time. For example, asp or php 
pages are considered as 'unknown', and require a 
preliminary check to detect the MIME type. This check 
is necessary BEFORE downloading the link as the engine 
may rename (asp -> html or php -> html) the page 
according to its type.
Use 'MIME types' to speed up the process: select 
something like 'php,asp,cgi' -> 'text/html'

Yes, maybe a missing embedded class or something. The 
java parser will have to be rechecked (the generated 
paths are sometimes not correct)
