Hi Shlomi.<br>
<div class="im"><br>
<br>
&gt; 1. Why have you not reported this bug here -<br>
&gt; <a href="https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=DB_File" target="_blank">https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=DB_File</a> . How do you<br>
&gt; expect<br>
&gt; this problem to be fixed at the core otherwise?<br>
&gt;<br>
<br>
</div>Because obviously the bug was already found and reported - otherwise the<br>
author wouldn&#39;t have known to comment out the test.<br>
That, and the fact that the list is full of years-old bugs.<br>
<div class="im"><br>
<br>
&gt; 2. Why aren&#39;t you using <a href="http://metacpan.org/release/BerkeleyDB" target="_blank">http://metacpan.org/release/BerkeleyDB</a><br>
&gt; instead of DB_File ?<br>
&gt;<br>
<br>
</div>Because it is core, and in that application, reducing dependencies is<br>
important.<br>
<br>
Shmuel.<br>
