    SlimServer crashes while scanning: Perl interpreter failed

    I am running SlimServer 6.2 on XP. I have all my music organized into a folder hierarchy, both flac and Mp3 files. I went to SlimServer and told it to scan my music folder to find new music. It stopped SlimServer and never restarted it again. I manually restarted it and it appears to have not found all of my music.

    I have repeated this process multiple times, telling it to find new music as well as rebuild the entire library, with the same result.

    I turned on the d_scan debugging option, but it was not impressed.

    Any ideas?

    if the server is stopping in mid-scan, it will find no more music from
    the point of the crash.
    When the server is stopped, you should see a reason for it in the
    Windows Event Viewer.
    Please report that message as it may point to the problematic file.

    The event log says "Perl interpreter failed." The thing is, I can't really tell where it failed. Here is the point in my hierarchy where it failed:

    Artist A
    - Album 1
    Artist B
    - Album 1
    - (missing Album 2) <- did this one cause the failure?
    - (missing Album 3)
    Artist C
    - Album 1
    (missing Artist D)
    - Album 1 <- or was it this one?
    (missing Artists E...)

    Artist B | Album 2 is classical, so there is lots of punctuation in the song titles, and the song titles are long, etc. But if that caused the failure, why would Artist C | Album 1 have shown up? There is nothing unusual about Artist D | Album 1 that I can see.

    I have ActivePerl 5.8.7 Build 815 installed on my machine, if that has anything to do with it.
