Bug #42717 Perl Interpreter Problem
Submitted: 2007-09-20 15:40 UTC Modified: 2007-09-20 15:48 UTC

Status: Not a bug Package: Performance problem
PHP Version: 5.2.4 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Our project uses the Perl Interpreter to access a Perl package
that returns an array reference that will be displayed by a PHP class.

The problem is that the Perl Interpreter attempts to free non-existent shared strings during global destruction.
This dumps over 12,000 lines of text into the Apache log and
impacts performance.

Reproduce code:
$perl = new Perl();

try {
  $perl->eval('use lib "includes/modules/";');
  $perl->eval('use Assessment;');
catch (PerlException $exception) {
  echo "Perl Error: " . $exception->getMessage();

Assessment is a Perl package that queries a DB2 database and
returns data that is displayed in the browser.

Expected result:
The apache log file without all the error messages

Actual result:
Over 12,000 lines of text in the apache log file that look like this:

Attempt to free non-existent shared string 'exe_ext' during global destruction.
