Description of problem:
Would like a new perl rpm that addresses the shared.xs memory leak
when using threads. I believe it was fixed atleast by version 5.8.2
Don't want to have to compile my own version of perl for the Enterprise
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Internal RFE bug #154449 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Sorry for the delay in processing this bug .
By "shared.xs memory leak" are you referring to this perl bug :
#24061: shared array memory leak in 5.8.1
( http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=24061 )
If so, the patch which fixes it ( #21530 ) has now been applied to the
next RHEL-3 perl-5.8.0-90.2 version.
This bug should probably have been treated as a normal bug report rather than
an enhancement request - it is a bug that perl-5.8.0's threads implementation
leaks memory, and a request to fix this is not an enhancement request.
Yes, this looks like our problem. -thanks
