Subject [lucy-dev] Perl’s global destruction
Date Sun, 19 Jun 2011 19:47:15 GMT
Perl’s extra pass during global destruction to fire destructors on any remaining objects
that escaped the purge--which was added and removed before 5.14.0--has been reinstated in
5.15.0, to be released tomorrow. I don’t know whether this is still a problem for Lucy,
but, if it is, that gives you at least ten months before this change makes it into a stable
release of Perl.

For those who are unaware of the issue, see:
