in reply to The number of ways I've independently discovered to make Perl segfault:

I find it interesting that when I saw this poll, I was in the process of reviewing an old node of mine that mentioned one way to get 5.6 to dump core.

I've also recently discovered an incredibly effective way to get Perl to dump core: run it on a filesystem that's corrupted in a way that causes stuff in general to dump core. (Perl dumps core... Emacs dumps core... ls dumps core sometimes...)
