Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-10-19 10:32:15 EDT
Could you please test this in previous dists, especially RHEL versions?
Comment 4 Radek Vokal 2005-10-19 10:41:49 EDT
This worked on RHEL3, works on RHEL4, only rawhide seems to be broken. 
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2005-10-19 10:47:53 EDT
Thanks for the analysis.  Can someone in the perl team report this upstream and
cross-reference with bug numbers?
Comment 6 Jason Vas Dias 2005-10-24 17:30:39 EDT
I cannot reproduce this bug with net-snmp-, glibc-2.3.90-15, and
perl-5.8.7-0.5.fc5 .

I added the 'master agentx' to the default /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file .

$ ./perl_module.pl
starting perl_module.pl
perl_module.pl loaded ok
registering at netSnmp.999
started us as a subagent (NetSNMP::agent=HASH(0x90514cc))
( pressed CTRL-C )
shutting down
mainloop excercised

I repeated this 10 times in a row with no glibc double free detected and a
0 exit status . The /var/net-snmp/perl.conf file was written OK .

Can you still reproduce this ? 

If so, does the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf configuration file you use differ in any
way from the default, with 'master agentx' added at the end ?

Comment 7 Radek Vokal 2005-10-25 03:33:59 EDT
Seems to be gone

# rpm -q perl glibc

Can't say if it was glibc issue, I keep my test box rawhide up2date :) 

Closing as rawhide
