           Summary: term-readline-gnu is broken since many years
           Product: Codex
           Version: stable grimoire
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: perl-cpan
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: sobukus at sourcemage.org

Version 1.15 of said spell fixed a double free/corruption bug on any usage of the perl module... many 
years ago.

Current version is 1.17a .
The specific bug I encountered is reproduced by this:

perl -MTerm::ReadLine -e 'my $rl = new Term::ReadLine "bla"; print "Your readline is: ".

With glibc 2.7 I get a non-positve return value and this message:
refcnt_dec: fd -1 < 0

Which is a PerlIO error message... with older glibcs you get a "double free or corruption" variant.
Well, baseline is that we really want that version upgrade.
