Subject: Build test hangs occasionally on test failures
Download (untitled) / with headers

I've been experiencing problems with tests hanging while installing modules via "perl -MCPAN -eshell". I've had the problem on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows XP. This has occured on perl 5.8.0(Windows XP), 5.8.1(Linux), and 5.8.2(Mac OS X). Today, I tried to install the module Log::Dispatch. Build test hung while loading the test. Attached is the strace output for the attempted test run. I do not know if this is Module::Build related or perl itself.

I ran a perl -d Build test and its actually hanging in Test::Harness.

Still not sure what's going on here - could you tell me the versions of stuff that you've got, or something? I've never seen this behavior myself. You might have to do a little poking at things yourself to see if you can find something else out. -Ken
Okay, thanks. Bug 4412 is fixed now in CVS.
