too bad though the bug doesn't seem to get solved.

"Patches speak louder than words", as the saying goes...

I have looked into the thing and made up a tentative patch:

that seems to fix it. There are still problems with two failing tests. One of the fails can be fixed in a straightforward manner, the other one I haven't followed up yet.

If you want the fix quickly you're invited to pick it up for submission at p5p. You can mail me through my address for more details if you want to. Otherwise I'll come back to it later, which may be much later.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
