Testing Config::General consumes extreme amounts of memory
Message ID:
On 64-bit Windows 10 with perl 5.24 built using MSVC 2013. It may also
happen with other perls under Windows, but I haven't tried.

I can confirm that I did not observe this in my 64-bit ArchLinux
install on the same hardware with perl 5.24.

I reported this to Config::General. The report can be found here:

The output from `nmake test` is here:

I am not sure if this is a package bug or a perl bug that surfaces
under specific circumstances or an oddity I introduced in my build.


# WARN: Deep recursion on subroutine "Config::General::_open" at
line 477, <GEN55> line 28.

Out of memory!

which does not happen on my ArchLinux install.

I am also emailing P5P in case this rings a bell with regard to
changes/features introduced in 5.24.

Thank you.
