Hi Philippe,

(Sorry for the delay with my answer - I'll be quick from now on)
Thank you for your interest to help me with this crasher.

This is 32 bit. I can check on 64 bit.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 0xb7cf9ad0 (LWP 8233)]
0xb7c0b095 in Perl_pp_undef () from /usr/lib/libperl.so.5.10
(gdb) info locals
No symbol table info available.

Any clue?

Same with others:

(gdb) print *handler
No symbol "handler" in current context.

(gdb) print *r
No symbol "r" in current context

(gdb) print *args
No symbol "args" in current context

Do I have to recompile Perl with some special debug symbols?

I was trying to do so but haven't succeded with any minimalized
test-case yet. But it's not really so much code anyway and it's all GPL.
I'll try to make an easy package of it.

Jozef
