my $Ā = 5;
gets this error:
"my" variable $strict::VERSION can't be in a package at C:/perl/lib/st
+rict.pm line 93, near "$strict::VERSION "
Compilation failed in require at C:/perl/lib/utf8_heavy.pl line 2.

If the "my" is taken out, it prints the expected 5. But why is it getting this error? I'm not trying to my $strict::VERSION as the error says. I'm using version 5.8.0, apparently it works fine in 5.6.0, is this a bug?
