Bug Description

when searching for the info. on ip in the whois tab in network tools it freezes - network tools 2.20.0 and having to force quit it to exit out of it..

Also it says when getting SOME info before it freezes Latino American ip registry however on http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=whois&host= it shows diff. and that site gets all the info. and I suppose all websites will also that query the whois registry for info. So far all other ips work fine and DO NOT freeze up network tools..

adding that I use a P4 2.66ghz - 32-bit computer.

I have solved this bug.
The problem was with particular char for example with address one string is: "Marco Antônio Raupp"
I have solved with changing the encoding (local charset -> ISO-8859-1) only for this problematic string.
