in reply to Producing minimal examples for crashers

Older versions of my module Sort::MultipleFields would reliably make some older versions of perl segfault. I worked around it but if you look through the commit history you can probably get something useful.

    It doesn't segfault with the current 5.8.8 distributed with CentOS, and it doesn't segfault with perlbrew 5.8.8 either. Hm.
      Yes, that's because I fixed it. You'll need to bisect the previous versions in git to find a version where the tests cause a segfault.
        I was attempting to use the correct previous version, just checked and it seems that I did have the code which is labeled as segfaulting in the commit log, i.e. the checkin prior to the one that says "Hide the segfault"...
