Subject [mp2] [BUG] Segfault with Test::More - duping STDOUT?
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2011 17:40:14 GMT

(I have read the bug reporting guides but unfortunately cannot follow all the instructions
because I am missing Apache::TestReportPerl and do not have the necessary permissions to install
it, nor to rebuild perl with debugging turned on. Hopefully I have provided enough information.)

I have discovered that simply "use"ing Test::More in a mod_perl script causes my apache to
segfault. I originally reported this to the author of Test::More (see https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=69687)
but now believe the problem to have wider scope. By progressively removing code from my original
example I have reduced it to the trivial example that follows.

To REPRODUCE the problem, you need a Broken.pm module like this:

    package Broken;
    my $Testout;
    create(); sub create { # Insert "{#" at the start of this line and the segfault goes away
        open( $Testout, ">&STDOUT" ) or die "Can't dup STDOUT:  $!";
    }

and a script like this:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w

    use Broken;

    print "Content-Type: text/html\r\n\r\nhello ";
    open TEST, "|/bin/cat";
    close TEST;
    print "world\n";

Holding down F5 to generate reloads soon causes a segfault (my server is configured for five
mod_perl processes).

Note that if the code to dup STDOUT is not in a sub then the fault seems to go away.

Apache, mod_perl and perl version info appended.

I have found a similar(ish) report at http://http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4413411/ but
no resolution. Note that removing from my example the code that opens the pipe to cat, solves
the problem - this is the similarity here (and I realise that's likely a red herring).
