Description Thornton Prime 2000-07-28 01:07:26 EDT
Perl won't create an IO socket with a timeout value. This totally breaks
Net::LDAP. I suspect a lot of other CPAN modules are going to be seriously
broken also by this.

Example:

  use Data::Dumper;
  use IO::Socket;

  $test = new IO::Socket::INET(           
	PeerAddr => 'www.redhat.com',
	PeerPort => 80,
	Proto => 'tcp',
	Timeout => 120
	);

  print Dumper($test);

Will produce 'undef'. Same code without the timeout line works fine. This
works fine with RedHat 6.2/Perl 5.00503.

This should be fixed in perl-5.6.0-7 and later.  Please reopen this
bug ID if you find that this is not the case.
