sevg using perl 5.8.0

I had this same problem on 5.6.1 as well, and installed 5.8.0 hoping it would go away.

I run a script that opens mysql and it gets a seg fault. Here is the script:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use Getopt::Std;
use DBI qw( :utils :sql_types );

my $dbh = DBI->connect( "dbi:mysql:logdb;host=localhost",
PrintError => 1,
RaiseError => 1,
AutoCommit => 1
} );

unless ( $dbh ) {
print "$0: $DBI::errstr\n";

/d/src/admin/logdb> perl -V

Here is the stackdump:

/d/src/admin/logdb> more perl.exe.stackdump

Stack trace:

When i try to run it with perl -d, I get this:

/d/src/admin/logdb> perl -d

Loading DB routines from version 1.19
Editor support available.

Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more help.

<then it loops forever, fully consuming the CPU>

Also, It gets a segv when running CPAN, after it goes through all of the CPAN questions.

When I was on 5.6.1, the problems were similar, though perl -d worked better and i could run my test program with it and get a perl stack trace. If this is helpful, i can reinstall 5.6.1 and post that trace.

I'm running win2000, SP2 (5.0.2195).

Other perl programs seem to work ok.

SHould I just reinstall all of cygwin, or is there anything else I can check?
