I know how the qr stringifies, and that's exactly the problem. However, when qr was introduced (which was long after perl5 as suggested elsewhere in this thread, I think it was 5.005) it was suggested that qr would be faster when interpolating. Even if you change the middle part of the benchmark to $x = qq "$x" and $x = qr "$x", the qq is three times as fast as the qr.
I've had programs come to a grinding halt after using qr too liberaly.
