I vaguely recall that with this experimental feature, you're supposed to use dynamic/local vars instead of lexical/my vars
That's because the code was exceedingly buggy and would usually use the wrong pad, resulting in unexpected behaviour or seg faults before 5.17.1 (for which I completely rewrote the feature). Its now safe and sane to use lexicals, modulo any new bugs I may have introduced.

LanX wouldn't update system Perl!
[Discipulus]: prathap keerthipati might be it is better to install an alternative Perl instead and do not touch the system one
[LanX]: see perlbrew for alternative Perl installations
[marto]: unless you know exactly what you're doing an often saner option is to simply build another Perl rather than replace the system one
