Package: libsoap-lite-perl
Version: 0.712-1
Severity: important

I am using Bugzilla 3.6.2 with XMLRPC (using bugzilla/xmlrpc.cgi).
Accessing this results in the following error:

debian:/var/www/bugzilla# perl contrib/bz_webservice_demo.pl --uri http://localhost/bugzilla/xmlrpc.cgi
Client Application failed during request deserialization:
no element found at line 1, column 0, byte -1 at
/usr/lib/perl5/XML/Parser.pm line 187
 in SOAP call near contrib/bz_webservice_demo.pl line 189.

The only way I found to fix this was to replace the sysread() call with
read() in /usr/share/perl5/SOAP/Transport/HTTP.pm as suggested in:
