According to the documentation, the function htmlParseChunk returns
"zero if no error, the xmlParseErrors otherwise". However, -1 is not
listed in the xmlParserErrors enum type. I am just wandering what's
the meaning of that?

It seems that after a return value of -1, all subsequent chunks are
simply ignored.

  This would seems to indicate the html parser think it reached the
end of the document or encountered something it can't recover from.
Check the errors emitted by the parser.
