Subject: crashes when redirected to invalid URL
I'm using POE-Component-Client-HTTP-0.947 with perl 5.16.3 on CentOS 6.4 . redirects to a URL that starts with "htttp:" The following code crashes and produces a screenful of error messages- use POE qw(Component::Client::HTTP); use HTTP::Request; my (@requests); my $request = HTTP::Request->new(GET => ''); push @requests, $request; POE::Component::Client::HTTP->spawn(Alias => 'ua', FollowRedirects => 1); POE::Session->create(inline_states => { _start => sub { $_[KERNEL]->yield('process_feed') }, process_feed => \&process_feed, process_response => \&process_response } ); sub process_feed { return unless (@requests) and (my $request = pop(@requests)); $_[KERNEL]->post('ua', 'request', 'process_response', $request ); } sub process_response { my $request = $_[ARG0]->[0]; my $response = $_[ARG1]->[0]; printf("URI: %s\t Status Line: %s\n", $request->uri, $response->status_line); $_[KERNEL]->yield('process_feed'); } POE::Kernel->run();

Thank you very much for the test case and patch. The confess() was put in place to debug a rare condition we couldn't figure out how to reproduce. I'm glad you found it, as you've been very helpful resolving it. I've committed a much different fix and uploaded version 0.948 to CPAN. I hope it satisfies your requirements. If it doesn't, please let me know.
