I have no clue what causes it. Any idea?
Not a clue I'm afraid. I don't use gcc/linux.
The first thing I would do were I you, is install a recent copy of Perl and relevant libraries, and then try your code there.
From memory, 5.8.8 wasn't a bad release of perl as far a threading was concerned, but an aweful lot of bugs have been detected and fixed in the intervening nearly 6 years. If you are lucky, the problem will have just 'gone away'. If not, you will at least stand some chance of getting any bug reports you raise taken seriously.
Then you need to start stripping away large chunks of your program, whilst maintaining the same error, until you have something small and independent of your own setup and data that demonstrates the problem, so that people can reproduce your problem on their systems.
But trying it on the newest releases -- of perl and all involved modules -- should be your first priority.
You could also try describing your program requirements here and see if someone can't come up with a working solution you could use.
