Something in perlio broke
Message ID:
On my two testing machines GD dumps core now. 

On the one machine I have glibc-2.1.3 and egcs-1.1.2 and the core
dumps started with patch 8282. Here is a stack trace:

    at perlmain.c:52

On the other machine I have linux-2.4.0 and glibc-2.2. The core dumps
started here with patch 8273 and the stack trace looks like so:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x400c0d61 in ?? () from /lib/
#1  0x400b77ad in ?? () from /lib/
#2  0x401b3702 in ?? ()

#11 0x805b9b5 in main (argc=3, argv=0xbffffaec, env=0xbffffafc)
    at perlmain.c:52

On this second box the compiler (gcc-2.95.2) issues a warning

  GD.xs: In function `XS_GD__Image_newFromXpm':
  GD.xs:546: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast

But this should not be relevant to my case because I compiled without
XPM support.

In both cases the coredump happens during 

main::test1(t/GD.t:94):     open (TILE,"./tile.png") || die "Can't open tile file: $!";
main::test1(t/GD.t:95):     my($tile) = newFromPng GD::Image(TILE);
Signal SEGV at t/GD.t line 95
        main::test1() called at t/GD.t line 32

GD.xs has this definition of newFromPng:

gd_newFromPng(packname="GD::Image", filehandle)
        char *  packname
        InputStream     filehandle
        PROTOTYPE: $$
        RETVAL = (GD__Image) GDIMAGECREATEFROMPNG(filehandle);

Is it possible to guess what might be needed to fix the core dumps?
