I was able to track that bug down a little more and discovered the
problem was coming out of HTParse withing LibWWW.  The workaround
is actually a little easier than I first descibed.  If you
simple reference the file with "localhost" as the host name
you can read off of the local disk and make it work.  The reference
would look something like this.


Where PATH and FILE are replaced with the pathname and filename
