Apologies if this is a known issue; I'm not in a position
to check the archives at the moment. (Actually, could some kind soul

Using the current development snapshot I compiled up Perl
5.6.0 RC1 without any problems. However, I'm having problems
with a very simple line of Perl:

perl -le 'print q/foo/ if -t STDIN'

(Print foo if STDIN is connected to a terminal.)

Running this on bash 2.03, I got the following: (after a long

$ perl -le 'print q/foo/ if -t STDIN'
205865942 [main] bash 9025 sig_send: wait for sig_complete event failed,
-2, rc 258, Win32 error 0

Running under strace and/or zsh, the problem went away.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
