Hi, while running test suites for blead on centos 5 through an automated system. I encountered a bug with autodie. t/recv.t assumes STDIN is opened in test 5-6. I'm attaching a patch to skip if STDIN is closed.

I think I spoke to soon. Actually STDIN is open in this failing test. but recv does not die. looking at buffer, nothing is in it that I can tell. and $buffer is not a ref. This is happening on centos 5 both 32/64 bit distro versions. The test with exactly the same conditions does not happen on centos 6 32/64

I think I'll have a fix tomorrow. I'm waiting for some test results. I think the problem I'm having is because STDIN is a socket in my test. I worked with p5p this afternoon and have determine a way to determine this and skip as a result. More tomorrow.

I've confirmed the problem is that STDIN was a socket in my case. The simple fix is not to use STDIN. I instead am providing a patch that just opens the perl binary for read. I think this should work on all platforms.
That fix didn't work in blead. Let's try this one:
