Ticket #1923 (closed bug: fixed)
Filehandle PMC clone VTABLE does not work
|Reported by:||Yuki`N||Owned by:||Yuki`N|

Parrot's FileHandle PMC type defines a clone VTABLE, but the implementation looks to be quite buggy. The clone VTABLE creates a new FileHandle PMC and creates a raw copy of the OS handle object. It does not copy over any other details (I don't know if these would all be needed). This is probably very bad.
There is already a task created in Melange for fixing this. Making a formal trac ticket for this bug since the solution will likely need review.
