The following code segfaults: perl -MList::MoreUtils=apply -le '@a = sort apply 1,2' Only the XS version segfaults, the pure perl version works fine. I tested it on the following (sparse) list of versions I have available: 5.12.[24] - works 5.14.2 - works 5.15.5 - segfault 5.16.0 - segfault 5.18.0 - segfault 5.19.11 - segfault Both 0.33 and 0.400_009 are affected. I tried to reproduce it with List::Util::reduce, but can seem to convince sort to use it as a compare function. -- Sven Schöling

I added a dedicated check in all functions before calling $code. Seems to be a nasty one - I forwarded it to perl5-perters and wait what comes out of it. Cheers
The LMU part should be solved with 0.400_010
