In addition to BrowserUk's suggestion, be sure to install the latest versions of threads and threads::shared, which are now dual lifed, and have had numerous fixes applied in the past 12-18 months.

    'Dual lifed' ??
    Can I have sub-titles (English) for that ?
    BTW, I agree with using re-usable thrs instead of creating/destroying each time. It solved a mem leak prob for me, although I don't work there any more, so I can't confirm version numbers.
    Suffice to say it was a prog that had to run 24/7, so even a small leak eventually killed the machine. Has been running fine for ages now.

    Cheers

      Dual-lifed means the module is available both on CPAN and as part of a Perl release. Most modules available as part of the Perl distribution start out as CPAN modules and are then "added to core" at a later point. However some modules see their initial release as part of the core distribution, and occasionally are then split out. This process is often called "becoming dual-lifed".
