This error message looks different but points to the same line (not sure whether it is connected):

[2020-11-09T14:56:20.420 CET] [debug] Backend process died, backend errors are reported below in the following lines:
panic: attempt to copy freed scalar 10035a0c9c0 to 1003892f520 at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.26.1/Devel/StackTrace.pm line 61.

notes

  • There's also #64664 so this isn't actually something new.
  • See attached log files.
  • Not sure about the cause. These error messages are quite generic so maybe there's also not just a single cause. In any case, these weird error messages are weird and not very helpful and should be avoided.

I have moved the auto_review expression to #56741 . This issue seems to be strongly linked to migration s390x scenarios. I commented there. We can keep this ticket about the "error feedback improvement".
