Well... Putting my money in the same place as my mouth, I have fixed
the most obvious bugs, at least the ones that I can fix without
breaking everything else; to tell the truth, as I haven't done
serious code churning in a loong time (much less in C++) I was
scared of touching the beast. There is still an issue with URI
escaping, all spaces within a reference label should be treated as
entities and replaced by the quoted printable code (%20); don't
think I can write the code myself!

Unified diff attached.
