Open bugs on HP-UX
Message ID:
The following ID's do NOT represent a bug. Why has it entered? Tey are OK


This bug has been squashed and has been accepted by the pumpkin. I has entered
as patches 6445 and 6340 and thus should be closed. They were introduced by
6928, 6883, 6884 and 6885 (I think).


The following message ID's are in fact the same. They have been downgraded to a
warning By patch 6964, 6944 and 6942.
I think they should be closed.

lib/ftmp-security...ok 3/13File::Temp::_gettemp: Parent directory (./) is not safe (sticky bit not set when world writable?) at lib/ftmp-security.t line 97
Error in tempfile() using ./temptestXXXXXXXX at lib/ftmp-security.t line 97
        Test returned status 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)
DIED. FAILED tests 6-13
        Failed 8/13 tests, 38.46% okay


Think these are the same:
and are they still an issue? All my *DBM_File tests succeed. All I can find in
there is:

All okay except for the infamous HP-UX lib/odbm failure.

Anyone can fill in what the problem was?
