in thread Is this DBM::Deep behavior, or something with tie/bless?

Rather, $SIG{__DIE__} handlers need to detect that eval is in effect ($^S -- even though it still isn't perfect). $SIG{__DIE__} is (by far) the 'worse' magic and so needs to take the burden for "playing nice". "Simple" use of eval doesn't need to be made even more complicated. local( $@ ); is another safety measure that is missing from the simple examples. Quite the mess.
