Description Petr Pisar 2012-05-28 07:16:52 EDT
Upstream 5.16.0 perl release has a bug in XS::APItest. The problem is in accessing unallocated memory. Reported to upstream mailing list with proposed patch (http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.perl.perl5.porters/109408).

We need to fix it after bumping 5.16.0 into Fedora.
