1.108.1. RHBA-2010:0712: bug fix update

Updated perl packages that fix a bug in threading are now available.
Perl is a high-level programming language commonly used for system administration utilities and web programming.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Previously, joining a thread variable or calling the "undef" function on it in a Perl script resulted in the following error message:
Attempt to free unreferenced scalar: SV 0x7b7dcb0, Perl interpreter: 0x7b4cfb0 during global destruction.
This error has been fixed, and using the above functions now works as expected. ( BZ#629935)
Users of threads in Perl programs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
