Just a small update:
I am running an unpatched perl-5.14.2. The only modification being:
Patching hints/gnu.sh from debian bug #636609.
The failure can be described as below.
When running perl test t/op/lfs, the system becomes unresponsive.
There is no prompt, Cant SSH into machine,etc. The only option is a
# checking whether we have sparse files...
# s1 = 3 57771 33206 1 0 0 0 1000003 1322588063 1322588063 1322588063 8192 16
# s2 = 3 58202 33206 1 0 0 0 2000003 1322588063 1322588063 1322588063 8192 16
# we seem to have sparse files...
After about 5 minutes, even if you interrupt the test the system
proceed to hangs. The Vitual box Hardware activity icon, keeps showing
activity but the system does not respond.
Running the testing tool in verbose mode seems to give the same output too.
