Subject: libossp-uuid-perl: Data::UUID::to_b64string returned value ends with a "\n"
Date: Sun, 19 Nov 2006 15:09:10 +0200
Package: libossp-uuid-perl
Version: 1.3.2-1
Severity: important

MIME::Base64's POD says: 
encode_base64($str, $eol);

    Encode data by calling the encode_base64() function. The first
    argument is the string to encode. The second argument is the
    line-ending sequence to use. It is optional and defaults to "\n".
    The returned encoded string is broken into lines of no more than 76
    characters each and it will end with $eol unless it is empty. Pass
    an empty string as second argument if you do not want the encoded
    string to be broken into lines.

In Data::UUID::to_b64string, an empty string as $eol isn't supplied, so
the returned string ends with a "\n".

This breaks others modules as well (like Data::GUID).

Patch for /usr/lib/perl5/Data/ :
<     return MIME::Base64::encode_base64($bin);
>     return MIME::Base64::encode_base64($bin,'');
