I upgraded from 5.1.5 to the nightlies on 14-May to get rid of the memory
leak issue on Linux. I don't know if this problem existed in 5.1.5 or not.

After starting the server, go to the web page Server Settings->Advanced
Server Settings->Performance and select "Wipe Cache" and the server crashes.


Error in log file is:

Can't call method "id" without a package or object reference at
/usr/local/slimserver/Slim/Utils/Prefs.pm line 460.

I just upgraded to the latest nightly and it still happens.

wipe cache calls the command to wipe the cache memory and start a rescan.
execution of a command contains a client tag, so you must have a client
connected in order for this to work. no client, no id...and boom.

Give it time after startup for your client to be detected, then it should work
fine. This is a known bug:
