Description of problem:
Reported it today http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=64550
perl 5.10 crashes with segfault

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-5.10.0-56.fc10.x86_64 (but crashes on 32-bit too, Windows version crashes too)

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
Follow the instructions on http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=64550 and/or http://users.camk.edu.pl/chris/5.10-bug-afm2pfm/
Actual results:
perl 5.10 (Fedora 10) crashes, perl 5.8.8 (Fedora 8) runs perfectly

Additional info:
The bug is already fixed according to Dave Mitchell <davem@iabyn.com>.
Still Fedora 10 uses the buggy perl.

It's not.
I check this on rawhide which has the same patches as the latest build  for F-10 (perl-5.10.0-67.fc10) and here it's working. You can install this build from testing repositories or https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F10/FEDORA-2009-2992
Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-04-24 04:29:37 EDT
Should be fixed in perl-5.10.0-68.fc10
Comment 3 Krzysio (Chris) Leszczynski 2009-04-27 05:22:06 EDT
Confirmed! Now it works with the software that trigerred the above bug.
Many thanks to Red Hat, Fedora and Perl Teams.
