your example code doesn't show why you are trying to use closures

I'm not trying to use closures myself. I am using the Net::Telnet module and uses closures in a number of different places. My main headache is that I don't understand (nor really want to understand ;-), I just want it to stop crashing. So I'm looking for a "safe" way of getting rid of the closures without having to go to the bother of actually understanding

BTW, I manufactured the above test program to get a repeatable (yeah, I know, but, hey, it's repeatable for me ;-) and quick crash to make debugging easier. The original program crashed intermittently once an hour or so, which was a real pain to debug -- the clue re closures was got from the "Free to wrong memory pool at line 1987" message that accompanied most (but not all) the original crashes.

Update: Thanks to everyone for reporting the lack of crashes. After further testing, it seems the above test program always crashes on multi-cpu machines yet never crashes on single CPU ones (at least that's what I see).
