Subject: RPC::XML::Server dies on very slow methods
Download (untitled) / with headers

RPC::XML::Server dies on very slow methods without any message. It happens on methods with execution time more than ~20 seconds on Debian Lenny. When the SIGPIPE is caught in the "process_request" function (as I see it is the fix for the #54183 ticket), RPC::XML::Server dies on execution of the following line: ----------------------------------------------- $conn->close; ----------------------------------------------- Placed it to "eval" block resolved this issue in most cases but not always. I've resolved it by adding a local SIGPIPE handler into this "eval" block. OS: Debian 5.0 Perl: 5.10.0 RPC::XML: 0.74
Here is the patch I propose to resolve the issue.

Patch applied, with a little adjustment to how I check the eval return. This will be in 0.76. Randy -- Randy J. Ray
