Sorry, I am sitting here buried in my own incomprehension. I want you to
try and change the file src/document/html/renderer.c on a clean version.

[ "Clean" as the file unpacked from tar.gz or tar.bz2 file. I assume
  that is what you mean by extracting the contents from the source. ]

I can make patches if you don't want to edit the source.
