in reply to Parallel::ForkManager and utf8::all crash perl on Windows

Mmh, it crashed under Mac OS X too:

Karls-Mac-mini:~ Karl$ ./crash.pl 1..0 # SKIP Need utf8::all for this test crashing on Windows

But installing utf8::all fixed it...

Karls-Mac-mini:~ Karl$ ./crash.pl 1..1 ok 1

Don't know if this helps. Best regards, Karl

    Mmh, it crashed under Mac OS X too:

    crash means segfault, not failing test

      Mmh...first test failed. After saying install ut8::all everything looked fine. Nothing about segfault. Please feel free to correct me if i'm totally wrong.

      Best regards, Karl

        Based on what I see, in the first case the test did not fail. It was skipped (becasue you did not have utf8::all installed).

        After installing it the test was executed and passed.

        This is the normal and expected behavior, but on Windows the second one crashes. (With nasty popup offering to report to Microsoft)
