Description of problem:
Recently I have seen segmentation faults crop up in unattended (cron) perl
scripts. Unfortunately I can not reproduce them interactively.
I set them to create core files and downloaded perl-debuginfo. Attached you
will find some backtraces that might help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have perl scripts in cron (/etc/cron.hourly/ etc)
2.Use BSD::Resource to make them create core files if interrupted
3.Wait for messages in the mail
Actual Results: Perl scripts die from segmentation fault and create core files
Expected Results: They should not die. Perl should never ever see a segfault.
See attached gdb backtraces.
