Subject [mp2 patch] Support for ithreads in Perl 5.10
Date Sun, 03 Feb 2008 08:02:15 GMT
I am going to post a more detailled explanation of the following patch
in a little bit, but it takes care of one more *big* bug that would basically
segfault against threads Perl as soon as perl-level threads were spawned.
Not good.

The patches fixes that part for me, and the test suite is looking much
happier by now. Before I check this in, I need to clean things up a little
more and I am worried this could introduce the usual Win32 breakeage and
possibly against Perl 5.6, all and any testing certainly welcome from the
folks already jumping to 5.10

Not quite "works with Perl 5.10" yet, but getting there.
