Hi all,

I'm using cvs head on debian woody(historical reasons). I'm using
rlm_perl module with perl 5.6:
`dpkg -l '*perl*'`
...
ii  libperl-dev    5.6.1-8.9      
ii  libperl5.6     5.6.1-8.9     
ii  libsnmp-perl   4.2.3-2        
...

This version of perl is without ithreads and does not support
multiplicity.

I experienced following behaviour when sending HUP to radius process:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x404525dd in Perl_gv_fetchpv () from /usr/lib/libperl.so.5.6
(gdb) bt

#10 0x08058ee2 in main ()
#11 0x4024714f in __libc_start_main () from /lib/libc.so.6

Problem was localized to detach section of perl module and here is a
dummy patch(do not call custom detach function as I do not need it...)

Hope this can help someone...
