DBD-Pg core dumps when doing a select from a variable length array
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
Description of problem:
PostgreSQL module for Perl core dumps whenever you access a variable
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Core dumps every time with every select function
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a variable length array in postgres
2. Submit any select command to retrieve a value from that array
3. Immediate core dump
Variable length arrays are pretty new to PostgreSQL. I had to update
the DBD-Pg module to 1.32 to eliminate the core dumps. In addition, I
had to remove the 1.31 package since the CPAN install of the 1.32
module is lower on the search path than the one installed with FC3.
So 1.32 works fine with variable length arrays... 1.31 does not.
Ok, this should at least be fixed now in the FC-development tree.
