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.

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.
