Thanks for the reply.

Yes, it is quite an old cygwin: 1.3.22, running perl 5.8.0 with Storable 2.04. The mount points are binmode.

Opinions my own; statements of fact may be in error.

    ... not the oldest cygwin ever :):)
    Did you succeeded narrowing down a problem to some reproducable test case?

    (sorry for being trivial:)

      Excellent suggestion: if there's no known problem then I'll see if I can do that. Do you have any ideas what direction to head in? Are then any types of data that Storable might have problems with (e.g. self-referential structures, blessed things, big hashes, big arrays, ...). A simple flat array of [ (1) x 10e6 ] doesn't seem to trigger it.

        very strange, indeed;

        it is likely you found a bug, and, with mentioned 5.8.0, it is not very strange: current 5.8.8 version has many bug fixes.

        It is very likely an internal bug hidden inside cygwin perl internals, I bet it is caused by \r\n->\n struggle.

        I suggest you to try newer perl version on cygwin, and, if your problem persist, narrow down a problem and file a bug report.

[shmem]: well finally.
[stevieb]: nice! I just finished a GPS "take me home" device last week, and did a bunch of software updates to it yesterday. I also created a pseudo chip with an Arduino to simulate an IC, where it responds to register read/writes over the I2C bus...
[stevieb]: ...from an I2C master. It's ugly and there are many changes I'm going to make, but I had not done anything like it before. It's designed for my RPi:: automated test platform; a system that does CI on *all* my RPi modules.
[shmem]: pseudo chip?
[stevieb]: well, what happens is the Arduino 'listens' for requests r/w, and does the appropriate thing when it's interrupted based on the 'register' address sent in. It's ugly as it was my first attempt, but I've got great new ideas I'm just sitting.
