I like that.

Maybe this is already resolved. I can think of a way how this can be caused by 
the "mod_perl closes standard file descriptors" bug that has been fixed in 


According to the code, the script is run in void context the same as in any 
other context. The only difference is that apache closes the reading ends of 
the child's STDOUT and STDERR (and the writing end of the child's STDIN). So, 
it may be that the requestor's script dies due to a SIGPIPE. He does not 
provide details.


could be closed, me thinks. At least in my linux box it compiles and passes 
all tests with perl 5.13.9.

Do you have a link?

However, my highest priority is merging the threading branch. It works on 
Linux with a threaded and non-threaded perls. Testing and perhaps fixing on 
Windows needs to be done. I have managed to compile and test perl on a XP VM. 
That's a 1st step. But I won't mind if someone else would jump in.
