As with the two previous patches, the patch crashes on my server. Fortunately, it seems to die before any partial update is performed.

Are there any plans to look into this?

Hi there,

Another user suggested the following when we saw this before. Can you please give this a try and get back to us with results?

You probably have some Perl module installed which other people don't have.

You could try to run the patch script with tracing and see where it crashes:

apt-get install libdevel-trace-perl

perl -d:Trace bin/ --config conf/zmpatch.xml --verbose | tee /tmp/trace.log 2>&1
