Discarding the random data would not be correct, IMHO. The DTD for the
initial tag does not include *ANY PCDATA* segments. What do you do when
something is outside the norm? Get them the *HECK* outta there, aka, drop
socket.. (Not, I didn't say drop core.. ;-P)

Agreed. But I'm sure the core dump issue will be addressed.. ;-P No
