Re: Segmentation fault and perl backend...

1. First I got some error messages about my syntax with reference to
slapd.conf line suffix. This is probably quite correct although I don't
particularly understand why (the error might well be in my schema
extensions). I turned off schemachecking.

You probably want to run with schemachecking on. You could reset this and, assuming it wasn't something you fixed during (2), post your slapd.conf and the results of "slaptest -d conf" and we might point out a few ideas here.

3. When everything was fixed I tried to run slapd which exited immediately
with segfault. I have seen the combination back-perl and segfault several
times in my search (on the internet) for the bug, however I'm not sure
which of these cases that apply. It seems that some understanding as to
what does this exists but that no patch has been made.

There are only a couple back-perl ITSs that aren't closed, so whatever you found on your search likely isn't on track to be patched. Please create a symbolic back trace per http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/59.html and file a report at www.openldap.org/its. You might want to clean up your config file here on the list first.

What is the status of this. Is there a fix for this problem?
