  • On my Solaris 9 box, the lib/Config test went into some sort of endless loop which resulted in an "out of memory!" error. I just skipped the tests and installed it anyway.

    My point is, I think the tests themselves may be broken.

    • IIRC, lib/Config.t was added in the test suite just a few weeks before the release of 5.8.0. Thus it wasn't extensively tested ; -- however I didn't heard about this kind of failure. If some tests are broken (reproducibly broken, it may be sensitive to the load of your system or to other parameters) you may want to help to fix them.
  • It's intentional. If you want it fixed, do "export LESS=-R". See the release notes [ffii.org] for the latest groff.

    At some point, I will figure out why this doesn't happen by default.

    And of course, it's all locales causing the problems at the heart of it all. I could actually care less, but the fucking things break the sort order of ls. How crap is that?
