Where does <GEN1> come from?by mnooning (Beadle)

mnooning has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am attempting to diagnose a problem in code I am unfamiliar with. I get lines that look like the two below.
Error while ... edited out ... at t/ithreadm.t line 47, <GEN1> line 1.
Error while ... edited out ... at t/ithreadm.t line 47, <GEN1> line 835.
The "line 47" refers to the file t/ithreadm.t. I cannot find where the GEN lines are coming from. I grepped for GEN in all seemingly relevant files.
A search on the web indicates that the GEN numbers in error messages pop up quite a bit. What generates it? If I knew, I would have a better shot at diagnosing the problem.
