It sounds like you have found a bug in perl. Kudos to you, especially if no one else has found and reported it before you.

Two things you might try:

  • Is the bug reproducible in the latest development release of perl? (5.15.7 I think). The easiest way to compile and install a dev release of perl is with perlbrew.
  • Can you produce a minimal script that shows the bug that is as small as possible with a few dependencies as possible? Catalyst apps have a notoriously large number of dependences, so the perl maintainers won't enjoy digging through that mountain to find the module that is causing the trouble. The usual method is to start commenting out blocks of your code until you find the smallest script that will cause the bug.

    Sure, I'm running perlbrew anyway. Compiling perl-5.15.7 now.

    The only two things I've done recently is created two new Models using:

    use Data::Random qw(rand_chars); use Math::Random::Secure;
    so could be that, but who knows.

    Would you be willing to help me pass the right arguements to perlbrew to compile perl with debugging symbols? I think that's needed?

[Corion]: I have a rough plan to release an ImageNet classifier in Perl (well, using pretrained data, but still a nice toy)
Discipulus is going mad with the new win10 client.. tried mv Cortana /dev/null but no succes
[Corion]: Ouch - another pretrained set is available, using images from IMDB and Wikipedia. So I expect interesting results for non-PR images where people are pictured that are not made up
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, from my investigations, you can somewhat silence+disable Cortana, but some services of it remain always running unfortunately. What a waste of resources :-/
[Corion]: I hope you had a good weekend still ;)
choroba had a workshop with the band
[choroba]: which counts as a good weekend
[Discipulus]: yes, (at least until Sun afternoon...): Saturday we got splendid birthday party in a park: lot of eat, drink and children amusement: bag running, magnetic fishing, rope and that big pot full of candies to smash with a club
