Same goes for:
<map src="./" dimension="0"></map>

<info name="[XR]Vertigo&#x0D;" author="unknown" date_made="[3/1/2011]" description="No Extra Information&#x0D;" gamemodes="race" type="map" version="1.0"></info>
<map src="" dimension="0"></map>

Define "he created an illegal ".map" file.".

I found the reason for dat crash:
<map src="" dimension="0" />
This line seems the cause and solution to all of live's problems.

Happens on Debian 32 bit, Debian 64 bit and Ubuntu 32 bit.

unable to reproduce on a windows run server, I just get an error message telling me the map can't be found and subsequently can't start the resource

I tried it on debian and ubuntu, and it seemed to work.
The server just got stuck in an endless loop.

PhatLooser, i've just committed a change which will output to the log file some information that should help us identify where the problem is coming from. If you get the latest 1.4 unstable build and start the server with just the resource that is invalid, you should see some entries in server.log that look like "Meta.xml - Map: x". If you could let me know what number it ends at when it crashes, it should give me a better idea of where I should be looking

this should now be fine, have added a check to make sure that file names can't end with a /

Sorry, but I didn't have much time recently. I'll try it out later (and, of course, try it out with the latest 1.3 build)
