Hi, I found that the t/100generic-bzip2.t test cases hang on Cygwin when building the latest version from CPAN. System info: * Cygwin v 1.7.20(0.266/5/3) * Windows 8 (ver: Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]) * Perl v5.14.2 Basically the problem is that the FH filehandle on line 304 of t/compress/ is never closed, and for some reason this caused the script to hang on line 315 (upon exiting not the block containing the open FH, but the block outside that). I did an initial fix to close FH (patch attached as, which worked for me. However, I realized that wasn't the right place for the close FH, but rather inside the block where it was opened; I am submitting that as attachment Note I have not tested that one, but it should work. Please let me know if you need further information. Thanks, # Chris

Thanks for the patch Chris. I really don't know why that doesn't work on cygwin. I've applied the realfix.patch. cheers Paul
