Distribution: libwin32-0.24 (Win32::OLE 1.702 and 1.502) Perl-Version: v5.8.4 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread OS: Windows 2000, Service Pack 4 The following code: <Code> use threads; use Win32::OLE; my $thread = threads->new( sub { sleep 1; print "thread begin\n"; sleep 2; print "thread end\n"; }); sleep 2; print "join\n"; $thread->join; print "joined\n"; sleep 2; print "undef\n"; $thread = undef; sleep 2; print "end\n"; </Code> produces the error: Free to wrong pool 15d54f0 not 15d41f0 during global destruction. The offending statement is: $thread = undef; The debugger tracks down the error to ole.xs line 3309 <ole.xs> static void AtExit(pTHX_ void *pVoid) { PERINTERP *pInterp = (PERINTERP*)pVoid; DeleteCriticalSection(&g_CriticalSection); if (g_hOLE32) FreeLibrary(g_hOLE32); if (g_hHHCTRL) FreeLibrary(g_hHHCTRL); #ifdef PERL_IMPLICIT_CONTEXT Safefree(pInterp); /* line 3309 */ #endif DBG(("AtExit done\n")); } /* AtExit */ </ole.xs>
