in reply to Building Perl 5.x on Ubuntu 10.10 with an encrypted home dir?

The problem is with one of the tests which tries to extract a very long file and relates to a bug in encryptfs

We had a ticket for this and Colin Newell kindly patched the test to provide heuristics for the long file test, which was released as version 1.68 of Archive::Tar.

This has been added to blead perl, the development version of perl, and has been part of perl monthly development releases since v5.13.4 and will be part of the upcoming v5.14.0 stable release.

[LanX]: before digging into deep debugging ... I have a strange UTF8 problem, probably it rings a bell:
[LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
