Yes, my perl is 5.8.8:
$ perl -v
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi
The test script segfaults as per your example. However:
$ perl -MSafe -e 'print $Safe::VERSION, "\n"'
I now have two Safe.pm's:
2.14 is in /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8/Safe.pm
2.15 is in /usr/lib/perl/5.8.8/Safe.pm
$ perl -MData::Dumper -e 'print Dumper(\@INC);'
$VAR1 = [
I'm not sure why there is a discrepancy (no difference in Makefile.PL between the two versions), although I installed 2.14 via the CPAN shell, and 2.15 via bash.
When I upgrade the test script to 'use lib qw(/usr/lib/perl)' before 'use Safe', it does not segfault and emits:
$ perl test.pl
