Duh - I guess we have a problem there.
Next question that arises here: Is this problem limited to reading of
Unix config files (or should we say directories? :-)), or does it also
happen with other text file read accesses, e.g. a scene or INI file? And
is this a Unix-specific issue, or does it also affect Windows?
I guess there's work to do now; an endless loop is /not/ an acceptable
mode of failure. Thanks for finding this bug. Would you mind filing a
bug report on http://bugs.povray.org?
