Well, the bug fix is mostly a tricky approach to linking stuff, and I did send 
an E-mail to you about it way back when and got no reply.  

The primary problem is what happens if you load a plugin that links against 
libgsf with dlopen, unload it, and load it again.  If you do that from an 
application that itself (!) links against glib, you're in trouble (since the 
types are loaded / registered twice with glib and that's not going over too 
well).  The solution was to statically link libgsf against glib. Details are 
in the bugtracking system (, look under closed bugs 
for libextractor).

I think there were also some minor problems with error handing in libgsf 
(given the right mal-formed streams), but you can probably find those by 
doing a diff (and ignoring me deleting lots of code that we did not need).
We have since then switched version control systems, so I can't easily find 
those changes (if that is what you're interested in).

Again, I tried to communicate those problems to you earlier and did not 
receive any response.


p.s.: your mail was delayed since you're not subscribed to gnunet-developers 
and because was unavailable for a while to approve such posts
