Oh, if it were only limited to CPAN modules. Once upon a time, there was a thread about favorite Perl core dumps. If I hadn't bumped into that thread, there would still be an additional five core dumps that would not yet have been fixed.
Test your modules with bleadperl!
rsync -avz rsync://public.activestate.com/perl-current/ .
./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dprefix=/path/to/test/perl
Now, please test you modules! If you have test failures that don't happen with Perl 5.8.8, send a simplified test case to
perlbug at perl.org
