That's puzzling. Did/Can you compile with the "-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debug" 
cmake flag, as well? And which git branch did you pull? The file name might be 
/tmp/test1.xml instead...

Also, to make sure I'm on the same page, what type of Amazon search are you 
doing, so I can do exact repetition? What type of collection, what type of 
search? For instance, a book title search, or a movie upc, or whatever...

There shoud be debug output if the amazon search gets no response from 
amazon, as well as if it were mal-formed or empty XML.
