I have a patch that I *think* fixes it. It's sort of hard to tell because
the segfaults happen at random: The unpatched binary might download
50 files without a problem, or it might die on the first one. So far,
the patched binary hasn't crashed on me... but I've only had time to
test it a little bit.

I can submit the build with the patch (I've taken over maintenance of
uget), but I'd really like it if I could get a few people to help me
test it before submitting (I don't want to submit a build that might
contain a crashing bug). Anyone interested in uget enough to volunteer?

If not, I guess what I'll do is submit it as-is with a note in the README
saying "if you experience crashes *please* contact the maintainer".
