Description Petr Pisar 2013-07-26 12:48:54 UTC
IPC::Open3::open3() does not collect child states after failed execve():


$ perl -MIPC::Open3 -le 'for (1..10) { my ($in,
$out); eval { my $pid = open3($in, $out, "", "unknownprogram");
waitpid($pid, 0) }; } sleep 100'

Parallel process listing shows 10 zombies.

Reported to upstream <https://rt.perl.org/rt3/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=114722> with a fix.

All Fedoras are affected (tested with perl-5.16.3-244.fc18.x86_64 and perl-5.18.0-285.fc20.x86_64).
