devnul has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
So I've got this Embperl script (running via cgi, not mod_perl) which needs to fork a process.... The problem is sometimes this forked process core dumps (usually within Storable.pm, which is what we've got Apache::Session to use)... I'd sure like to know why it's core dumping, but I just can't figure it out (it happens very rarely and I can't find anything which reliably reproduces the problem)...
It occurs to me that it is desirable to not have the child process trying to write out the session during perl_destroy (which is what the DESTROY method in the Apache::Session object attempts to do)... Any ideas on what I might be able to do here?... The child *does* need access to what is saved in the session object, it should just not try to be saving it, in my opinion....
