Hi,

The default behavior of perl Storable::dclone function changed
in buster, setting a default maximum recursion in the structures
[1], [2].
This change has not been spotted before the release, but now
that buster is released and that big clusters are switching to
buster, this bug has been found (before the release, oar was
tested only on smaller cluster).
So, we sould like to revert to the old behavior of Storable::dclone
in the oar package (it is just two variables to set), so that
oar in buster still works on big cluster (> 1000 cores).

You can find in attachment the debdiff of our proposal.
This would close #942467

Regards,
Vincent

This needs to be resolved in unstable before it can be considered for a
stable update. (oar currently has the same version in unstable ansd
stable.)
