Re: [perl #66158] fork crashes on perl 5.10.0/Win32 [PATCH proposal]
Message ID:
Can I request that this fix (or a better-implemented fix for this bug)
go in, if not before 5.10.1-RC1, soon afterwards, please?

I'm given to understand (talk to kmx about that to be sure) that this
affects dependencies of Catalyst::Runtime (among others) on Win32. [ and ]
