in thread Tie::File and Tie::Array::Packed;

Win XP, ActivePerl 5.8.9 (I should probably upgrade that.) The Tie::File and Tie::Array::Packed modules are from that distribution.

    I have tried with that configuration and the program does not crash.

      Obviously there's something funky going on with my particular machine.

      Luckily using Tie::Array::Packed is not mission critical - although it looks like a sweet technique when running through humongous arrays.

      But it's a little scary to realize that a script that runs for five hours before completing its task, or an array with 20,000+ items in it, are not abnormal.

      This is coming from a person who actually remembers doing single 4 page print runs that took so long that I could walk to Starbucks for coffee and be back before it finished.
