#433: crashes in ESI parsing
 Reporter:  nicholas  |        Owner:  phk  
     Type:  defect    |       Status:  new  
 Priority:  normal    |    Milestone:       
Component:  varnishd  |      Version:  trunk
 Severity:  normal    |   Resolution:       
 Keywords:            |  
Changes (by phk):

  * component:  build => varnishd


 This is a XML comment spanning two storage elements containing a '>'.

 The preparser stops at the '>' but the real parser expects '-->' and gives
 up, leading to the panic.

 The easy fix is not solid, as comments can be arbitrary length.
