There is "Non-zero wait status: 139" - it's segfault. I think you definitely should try reproduce it.

    Another observation that failures are really random:
    Parse errors: Bad plan. You planned 17 tests but ran 2. Parse errors: Bad plan. You planned 17 tests but ran 4. Parse errors: Bad plan. You planned 17 tests but ran 16.
    and there is no actual difference between versions.

    I just tried to replicate the problem on an OpenBSD 5.1 vm and Perl versions 5.12.x and couldn't get a failing test.
      Check the environment. There should be something different. It also might be a bad memory on the smoker's machine.

        The environmental variables that remain constant between the failures match what I used in my own test.

        I also find it hard to believe that Bingos smoker VM can constantly change through OS's and submit PASSing test results for everything except OpenBSD occasinally if his VM indeed has bad memory. I suppose its possible, but it doesn't seem very likely.

        It seems much more likely its some obscure bug in the Perl core, or with MakeMaker. If we knew what/why, it may be able to be worked around. But I will ask Bingos if he can do a memtest on his smoke machine and update.
