Description Stepan Kasal 2009-07-31 15:51:41 UTC

Assertion ((((shplep)->sv_flags & (0x00004000|0x00008000)) ==
0x00008000) && (((svtype)((shplep)->sv_flags & 0xff)) == SVt_PVGV ||
((svtype)((shplep)->sv_flags & 0xff)) == SVt_PVLV)) failed: file
"FindRef.xs", line 212 at
line 196.

This message was observed when running the test suite of Test::Refcount.

Reported upstream (see the external bug link) and the prompt answer was that Devel::FindRef nay not be used in combination with -DDEBUGGING

Consequently, I'm reopening bug #156113; let's verify then that this bug disappeared.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 11:12:38 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 2 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2009-12-27 11:32:55 UTC
A rebuild of the same version of the package showed:
+ make test
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t
t/00use.t ....... ok
t/01count.t ..... ok
t/02one.t ....... ok
t/03weak.t ...... ok
t/04reftypes.t .. ok
t/99pod.t ....... ok
All tests successful.
Files=6, Tests=21,  1 wallclock secs ( 0.02 usr  0.02 sys +  0.16 cusr  0.04 csys =  0.24 CPU)
Result: PASS
+ exit 0

So it seems that a rebuild of perl was needed, closing to NOTABUG because the bug was of perl with DEBUG and not related to this package.
