in reply to When does Perl double the number of buckets in hash?

There's no reason to split after inserting into an empty bucket. A split only happens if 1) there's a collision (counter is true) and 2) the number of elements (including the newly inserted element) is greater than the number of buckets (xhv->xhv_keys > (IV)xhv->xhv_max> is true).
