[ID 20011029.062] CPAN shell Segmentation fault
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]

[ Anything that causes a seg fault is a bug in the core, wouldn't you agree? ]

I just noticed my cpan script is dumping core.  It doesn't do this from
the command line, but only when reading from a file, and it doesn't dump
core when the trailing semicolon is omited.  It also doesn't dump core
if the leading '1;' is omitted

$ echo '1; use CPAN; shell;' > cpan.script4
$ perl  cpan.script4       

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.59_56)
ReadLine support enabled

cpan> q
Lockfile removed.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

if it helps, after the "q" is typed to the cpan shell,
PerlIO_close() is called 5 times before the crash
