in reply to Strange memory leak using just threads

This might be the same that happens in Perl bug #77854, as detailed on Google Groups. Maybe 5.10 has a bug there, or it depends on libpthreads. dave_the_m commented that he can't reproduce the problem on 5.10 or 5.12, so it might be interesting to see whether you can reproduce the problem on 5.12 (or bleadperl) too.

    My libpthreads seems to be 2.7 (or, at least, the libc6 package it is contained in is 2.7. Specifically, 2.7-18lenny4).

    I'll give 5.12 a shot and see what happens.

      I downloaded perl 5.12.2, and I'm still experiencing the memory leak. This is using the threads 1.75 that came with the distribution, not the 1.77 I installed for 5.10.

      Here are the options I used with configure:

      -des -Dprefix=$HOME/perl512 -Dusethreads -Duselargefiles -Dccflags=- +DDEBIAN -Dcccdlflags=-fPIC -Darchname=x86_64-linux-gnu -Doptimize=-O2 + -Duseshrplib -Dpager=/usr/bin/sensible-pager -Uafs -Ud_csh -Ud_ua +larm -Uusesfio -Uusenm -DDEBUGGING=-g

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
