[ID 20010805.018] HP-UX core dump from op/pwent.t
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.33 running under perl v5.7.2.

[Please enter your report here]

Core dump deep down in the bowels of libc when endpwent() is called.
I have little idea of how to even start fixing this.  This used to
work as a few weeks ago, the HP-UX installation hasn't been patched.

What little I do know is that the user database setup (who can login)
in the machine is a little bit wonky (I won't go into details because
I don't know them :), but that of course is no excuse for a coredump.
