[dwm] testing URL

Is there anyone brave enough to risk dwm crashing willing to test going
to the URL (particularly in the firefox browser):


and let me know if dwm crashes or not. (The contents on the page
are innocuous and safe for work.)
Something to do with that string as a sel->name that gets passed to
X appears to crash dwm-4.0 ON MY MACHINE in drawstatus
reproducibly, whilst if I comment out the

if(sel) {
            drawtext(sel->name, dc.sel);
            drawsquare(sel->ismax, sel->isfloating, dc.sel);
        drawtext(NULL, dc.norm)

in drawstatus() I can visit the page in firefox OK. (I've had intermittent
crashing of dwm for a while now, but this is the first time I've had
something reproducible to cause it.)

FWIW, this machine is an x86-64 Linux machine running Fedora
core 5.

cheers, dave tweed
