Hi all,

Attached is a patch for’s
bug at :

As can be seen here:

There's an incompatibility between the XS abs_path() and _perl_abs_path(): if
one references a non-existent filename of an existing directory, then the XS
abs_path will return a correct results and _perl_abs_path will warn and return
nothing. This patch adds a testcase for the problem, and patches to fix

There is a similar patch provided for the standalone itself, but it
wasn't applied since its submission in 2008.

Thanks to Jim Keenan for his advice for sending this patch to perlbug.
