Description Peter Gordon 2005-12-18 02:24:13 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When starting a program with the perl debugger, the program crashes.
This is because of an error in file /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/perl5db.pl

On line 5814 of the file there is a line that reads 
my $rv = $ENV{PERLDB_NOTTY} || ( $ENV{HOME} ? $ENV{HOME} : /tmp ) ."/perldbtty$$";

The /tmp should be in quotes

my $rv = $ENV{PERLDB_NOTTY} || ( $ENV{HOME} ? $ENV{HOME} : "/tmp" ) ."/perldbtty$$";

That fixes the problem

Steps to Reproduce:

Looks like a duplicate of Bug 175953, which should be fixed by the recent
perl-5.8.5-24.FC3 errata update.
Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2005-12-19 12:52:45 EST
Yes, apologies - this typo was fixed with the perl-5.8.5-24.FC3 errata update .
