This is actually a test buffer overflow to validate "a bit more secure" string
copy functions inside httrack. Not really a problem.

> I patched it this way:

I have patched this way to keep the internal lib checking test. The code is
only executed if you start httrack with the "-#~" argument (undocumented
internal test features), so this is not a bug.

            case '~': /* internal lib test */
                char thisIsATestYouShouldSeeAnError[12];
                const char *const bufferOverflowTest =
                return 0;

Can you validate that this makes the warning disappear ?

Not dead, but the swf library is currently considered "stable". I can not
publish the full sources, because of the utterly, incredibly, astonishly
stupid license from Adobe which prevent anyone from distributing the SWF
library sources, even unmodified
( I asked them to
get rid of the restrictions now that SWF is a bit more opened (specs have been
released), but they never did AFAIK.
