No, that patch fixes a completely different "problem" that never bothered me at all, something that I don't consider a "problem" much less a "bug".

The patch causes unrelated objects to be destroyed in the reverse of the order in which they were created.

The problem I'm talking about is that related objects (that is, objects where one object holds a reference to the other) can be destroyed in the wrong order if the objects manage to live until the "global destruction" phase of the Perl interpretter shutdown.
