in thread qr/STRING/ fails with certain lookbehind expressions

I don't know why it doesn't happen for statically compiled regular expressions. Maybe this is the real bug here.
But it does:
$ perl5180 -e'/(?<!ss)a/i' Variable length lookbehind not implemented in regex m/(?<!ss)a/ at -e +line 1. $

Dave.

    And in Strawberry 5.16.3.1

    C:\strawberry-perl-5.16.3.1-64bit-portable\scripts>perl -e "/(?<!ss)a/ +i" Variable length lookbehind not implemented in regex m/(?<!ss)a/ at -e +line 1.
