Perl5-Porters,

Perl 5.005_61 / HP-UX 10.20 / gcc 2.95.1 gave a perfect "make test".
However, re-Configuring with "-Doptimize=-g" leads to two failures
during "make test"​:
1) t/pragma/locale.t
  334 trylocale("iso8859$_");
2) t/lib/posix.t​:
  76 &POSIX​::setlocale(&POSIX​::LC_NUMERIC, $lc) if $Config{d_setlocale};
Both spewed the following​:
  assertion botched (chunk's tail overwrite?)​:
  *((char *)((caddr_t)ovp + nbytes - sizeof (unsigned int) + i)) == 0x55
  Abort(coredump)

Let me know if there is anything I can do to further diagnose this.

Cheers,

Both of these do a setlocale(3) call. Maybe HP-UX setlocale() cannot
handle bogus locale names? (just a guess)

Both spewed the following​:
assertion botched (chunk's tail overwrite?)​:
*((char *)((caddr_t)ovp + nbytes - sizeof (unsigned int) + i)) == 0x55
Abort(coredump)

Or maybe HP-UX setlocale() assumes something that Perl's malloc doesn't
like? (just another guess)

Let me know if there is anything I can do to further diagnose this.

Give the perl executable and the resulting core dumps to a debugger
and show us the stack traces.
