Subject: make test gives "Bad free() ignored (PERL_CORE)"
On cygwin's Perl, "make test" issues several warnings about "Bad free() ignore (PERL_CORE)". See test.out for the output of "make test". The tests successfully complete, but I think this error does cause *other* Perl scripts to dump core. At least, other scripts will (sometimes) issue this warning a few times, and then dump core. (I haven't reduced the problem yet.) Version information (these all come from cygwin): $ perl --version | head -2 This is perl, v5.8.5 built for cygwin-thread-multi-64int $ xml2-config --version 2.6.16 $ xslt-config --version 1.1.10

Malloc/free were fixed in XML-LibXSLT 1.59 so I believe this old ticket can be closed. Make sure to use XML-LibXML 1.59 too. -- Petr
