[OpenLayers-Dev] Format.KML and maxDepth: NetworkLinks not working?

Hi list,

reading the Format.KML code it seems NetWorkLinks are not working right
now. Can anybody confirm this before I open up a ticket?

Since parseData puts in this.maxDepth as options.depth:

        // Set default options
        var options = {
            depth: this.maxDepth,
            styleBaseUrl: this.styleBaseUrl

        return this.parseData(data, options);

the check in parseLinks will always return false:

    parseLinks: function(nodes, options) {
        // Fetch external links <NetworkLink> and <Link>
        // Don't do anything if we have reached our maximum depth for
        if (options.depth >= this.maxDepth) {
            return false;

so no NetWorkLinks will be fetched regardless of the maxDepth value passed
in to the Format.KML constructor.

I think the code should read:

        // Set default options
        var options = {
            depth: 0,
            styleBaseUrl: this.styleBaseUrl

but I might be mistaken ....
