in thread Perl 5.8.8 threads, clean exit

Another thought. You say in your OP: "the 5.8.8 version doesn't support threads->exit().". You also say you have similar code working elsewhere.

threads is a cpan module. Why not simply upgrade to a newer version of that module that does support threads->exit?

    That one is easy, I have no accepted build environment for the module. (at least, that's hat the module reports on the AIX 6.1 system I have available) The Net:OpenSSH module accepts the available gcc, threads doesn't.

      That's a little like complaining that you cannot negotiate Leguna Seca, whilst towing a horse box.

      A newer version of Perl might fix your problem. A descent build environment might fix your problem. What are you expecting us to be able to do about that?
