The hashtables were broken on several 64-bit archs 
(Opteron, for example)

Darn.. this is the second time such behaviour was reported 
on Solaris, but I couldn't understand the reason.

The kill -HUP behaviour is definitely strange.. I must do 
something in httrack that isn't gentle with solaris and is 
causing a blocking. If you can compile httrack with 

./configure CFLAGS="-g -O0" && make && make install

.. and then try to grab the problem with gcc (after the 
hang, attaching the process to gcc) and tell me if you see 
where it freezes (using 'where' and 'list')

I suspect it freezes on the select() or sleep() call, but 
having the exact line and the corresponding variable values 
would greatly help me :)
