in reply to Different perl behavior between V5.10 and V5.14

It broke in 5.13.8 and was fixed in 5.15.4, so stable releases from 5.16.0 onwards are ok.

    Is this #107216? Why it's not backported to Perl 14? Looks like a serious bug.
      Is this #107216?
      Unlikely: the patch in that ticket is for the POSIX module, and was included in 5.15.7.
      Why it's not backported to Perl 14?
      Because our procedures for backporting fixes are a bit haphazard. Also, the 5.14.x branch is unlikely to have any further releases.
