New beta released

The new beta including complete protection against bugs and crashes in 
HTML::Parser is just uploading now... You're looking for 4.71.5-1 or 

Note there is a new languages.conf setting, so you will need to run
after upgrading to this new release. If you don't then the report will 
always come out in English, which you may not want. :-(

Please let me know how you get on with this. It appears to work for me 
with the message with all the nested <FONT> tags that kills HTML::Parser.

I would be particularly interested in your views on the performance 
impact this fix has, and therefore whether I need to add a feature to 
enable/disable it or anything else like that.
