Maybe Bug in Perl 5.20.0 (x86_64)? Please advice ...

by linuxer (Curate)
on Jun 05, 2014 at 18:20 UTC ( #1088936=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

linuxer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

At http://www.perl-community.de/bat/poard/start (a German Perl Forum) another user posted a question about a possible perl bug he discovered; the thread is http://www.perl-community.de/bat/poard/thread/19133 (not much content though...)

Unfortunately I have very little insight into Perl's internals I seek your advice, if it really is a perl bug or maybe just a "pilot error" (as erix called it ;-) )

I could follow his instructions and recreate the "bug". We both use a self compiled perl 5.20.0 (I used perlbrew for that; don't know what the other user used). The crash happens when using perl 5.20.0, but does not happen, when using 5.18.x (I used 5.18.1, the other user 5.18.2). My tested Perl versions are x86_64.

Instruction to run into the error:

  1. Needed Modules: DBI, DBD::SQLite, App::DBBrowser
  2. Create a SQLite Test database using this code:

    #!/usr/bin/env perl use warnings; use strict; use 5.10.1; use DBI; my $db = 'TestDatabase'; my $dbh = DBI->connect( "dbi:SQLite:dbname=$db", "", "", { RaiseError +=> 1, PrintError => 0 } ) or die DBI->errstr; my $table = 'Test_Table'; $dbh->do( "DROP TABLE IF EXISTS $table" ); $dbh->do( "CREATE TABLE $table ( Id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, Rating TEXT, +Downloads INTEGER )" ); my $sth = $dbh->prepare( "INSERT INTO $table ( Id, Rating, Downloads ) + VALUES ( ?, ?, ? )" ); $sth->execute( undef, "2.0", 7449 ); $sth->execute( undef, "2.7", 7048 ); $sth->execute( undef, "2.4", 4877 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.0", 10486 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.1", 8119 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.0", 10706 ); $sth->execute( undef, "2.8", 4795 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.8", 5879 ); $sth->execute( undef, "4.1", 7252 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.6", 6259 ); $sth->execute( undef, "2.8", 6615 ); $sth->execute( undef, "4.9", 5275 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3638 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3690 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3283 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 2568 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.2", 4950 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3211 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3876 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 2308 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.2", 3864 ); $sth->execute( undef, "4.8", 18707 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3395 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 2927 ); $sth->execute( undef, "1.8", 2291 ); $sth->execute( undef, "4.1", 7252 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.6", 6259 ); $sth->execute( undef, "2.8", 6615 ); $sth->execute( undef, "4.9", 5275 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3638 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3690 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3283 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 2568 ); $sth->execute( undef, "3.2", 4950 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3211 ); $sth->execute( undef, undef, 3876 );
  3. Install App::DBBrowser
  4. execute db-browser with the previously created database: db-browser TestDatabase
  5. Create the following SQL-Statement
    SELECT Rating, AVG(Downloads) FROM Test_Table GROUP BY Rating
    1. select ./TestDatabase
    2. select Test_Table
    3. select Aggregate -> AVG(X) -> Downloads -> OK
    4. select GROUP BY -> Rating -> OK
    5. select PRINT TABLE
    6. The error should happen now.
  6. Here's the error output that I got:

    And here's the (shortened) output of the other user: http://www.perl-community.de/bat/poard/message/175904#more_175904_1

What do you think? Is this a bug in Perl (maybe only in x86_64)? Or a "pilot error", but then I wonder what's that different in 5.18.1 that it does not throw such error?

Thanks in advance.

Update: I just installed 5.21.0 with perlbrew, switched to that version and installed DBD::SQLite and App::DBBrowser with cpan, and the test fails again. Currently I am thinking of how to install an 32bit perl 5.20.0 with perlbrew without interfering with the already installed 64bit perl for testing...

    Given that your back trace contains these lines:

    /home/linuxer/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.20.0/lib/site_perl/5.20.0/x8 +6_64-linux/auto/Unicode/LineBreak/LineBreak.so(gcstring_destroy+0x11) +[0x7f6a1c3f9de1] /home/linuxer/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.20.0/lib/site_perl/5.20.0/x8 +6_64-linux/auto/Unicode/LineBreak/LineBreak.so(+0x611a)[0x7f6a1c3ee11 +a]

    It seems likely that the bug is in Unicode::LineBreak, a module loaded by App::DBBrowser. Are you able to reproduce this bug without Unicode::LineBreak being loaded?

    Update: regarding your test on Perl 5.21.0, it is not surprising that you get the same result. Perl 5.21.0 is not substantially different to Perl 5.20.0. From perldelta.pod:

    Perl 5.21.0 represents approximately 12 hours of development since Perl 5.20.0 [...]

    Perl continues to flourish into its third decade thanks to a vibrant community of users and developers. The following people are known to have contributed the improvements that became Perl 5.21.0:

    Nicholas Clark, Ricardo Signes.

    The only significant change between 5.20.0 and 5.21.0 was to remove some of the modules that were deprecated in 5.20.0.

    use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

    Likely related to https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/40702; in this case a mix of DBI via CPAN and Arch Linux's centrally- maintained Perl 5.20 segfaults. No problem w/ Arch's perl-dbi package.

    Of course, I don't actually know if this data is all that helpful....

      Maybe, but I don't see how I could have mixed up system perl modules with perlbrew installed modules:
