This isn't really an issue in - it's a Perl bug which triggers: however due to the use of Carp message formatting, it means it's quite easy to run into messages like panic: attempt to copy freed scalar 183d588 to 1854078 when PERL_FUTURE_DEBUG=1. Not really sure what to suggest - later versions of perl don't seem to be as susceptible to this issue, although is still open. There's a patch in the ticket which avoids the error (haven't checked to see if it's a good workaround), if it's somehow possible to use the same approach in that might make debugging a bit easier on older versions of perl? cheers, Tom
