      Using puppet apply, if you configure the catalog_cache_terminus to yaml, and apply a catalog twice, you'll get an error on the second attempt when attempting to build the catalog from the cache. Here's the stack trace gathered using the '–trace' option:

      Error: undefined method `virtual' for "Stage[main]":String

      From a quick browse through the code, it looks like to_catalog assumes that edge sources and targets have been converted from the original strings, but they haven't.

      If you use 'catalog_cache_terminus=json', you don't see the error; as far as I can tell, the JSON and YAML versions of the cached catalog look equivalent.

      I've attached a tarball containing a trivial manifest and a Makefile; the manifest creates a tiny text file in `/tmp/hello.txt`. Doing

      $ make clean
      $ make puppet
      $ make puppet

      should produce the error. Using

      $ make clean
      $ PUPPET_OPTS=--catalog_cache_terminus=json make -e puppet
      $ PUPPET_OPTS=--catalog_cache_terminus=json make -e puppet 

      seems to work as it should.

      I haven't been able to find another ticket that records this error – if I missed one, my apologies. I don't imagine that the 'yaml' terminus is much used, but thought I'd note the problem.
