Description of Problem:
It's possible to crash perl and suidperl with the chop and chomp command:
[dries@delirium /]$ perl -e 'chop bla;'
I'm using perl perl-5.6.1-26.72.3 on a redhat 7.2 with all updates installed.
This bug can be also reproduced on alpha, ix86 and alpha. The bug also exists
in redhat 7.3 beta and also on other distro's like suse and debian (i asked some
people on irc to test it)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-5.6.1-26.72.3 from rh 7.2, also with the perl 5.6.1 version in redhat 7.3 beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1. type: perl -e 'chop bla;'
some warning or error message
The bugs.perl.org website does not work so
i'm not able to report it there. I will try to submit it the next days.
