in thread bug in threads::shared or is it just me?

well, the example is of course a stripped down test case, just to show the behaviour. in the real world, every thread makes a call to a webservice and writes the result as key/value pair in the hash. the parent of the sub then collects all results and do further processing.

I can't just remove the :shared, otherwise all data is lost to the parent when a thread ends. sure, I could share one single scalar variable for each thread and compose the hash in the sub, but that's clumsy.

and anyway, this is not even my code :-) I was just trying to help a friend, and was puzzled about the weird behaviour.

cheers,
