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.

    ... 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.
