Major bug in 5.8.2 debugger? Pager hangs

Posts: n/a

I've found what seems to me to be a huge bug in the perldb (debugger)
that comes with Perl 5.8.2. If one tries the following:

DB<5> |x $some_variable

then either the pager hangs indefinitely (one never sees the pager's
prompt after it prints the first screenful), or the pager works
fine until one hits q to exit, in which case it hangs indefinitely.
Sometimes, upon hitting q, and before the pager hangs, a message
like the following is printed out

Can't close DB::OUT
Pager `|/bin/more' failed: shell returned -1

I've seen this behavior with both more and less. IMHO, this is a
MONGO bug, but I have not seen mention of it anywhere. What's
going on?
