Description Charlie Brady 2007-11-15 16:43:28 EST
Description of problem:

examples/install prints warnings during exit - same is probably true of
program using Newt::Form::xxx.

 Use of inherited AUTOLOAD for non-method Newt::Form::DESTROY() is deprecated
        during global destruction (#1)
 Use of inherited AUTOLOAD for non-method Newt::Form::DESTROY() is deprecated 
during global destruction.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

bash-3.00$ rpm -q perl-Newt

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

Run "perl expample/install".
Additional info:

Adding this to Newt.pm makes the warnings go away:

*Newt::Form::AUTOLOAD = \&Newt::AUTOLOAD;

That's the recommended workaround from 'man perldiag'.
Comment 1 Charlie Brady 2007-11-15 16:56:45 EST
Note that this issue applies to RHEL4 at least, and probably other releases.
Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2008-03-05 10:43:07 EST
I've pinged Alejandro E. M. about possible new release with this fix.
Comment 3 Jan Pazdziora 2008-03-05 10:49:38 EST
I've got bounces emailing both the address from README and his @cpan.org email

It looks like upstream of Newt is lost.

This bug has been set to NEEDINFO. I don't know why. I've told you how to
reproduce the problem and I've told you how to fix the problem. What more info
do you need?
Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-04-04 14:19:38 EDT
Fixed in perl-Newt-1.08-21. If we wait for upstream to revive, this trivial bug
will never resolve, so I just did the one-line patch.
