Deparse says \my(%hash) is the same as \my %hash but it isn't

$ perl - warn \my %hash; warn \my(%hash); ^Z HASH(0x99aa14) at - line 1. Warning: something's wrong at - line 2. $ perl -MO=Deparse - warn \my %hash; warn \my(%hash); ^Z warn \my(%hash); warn \(my(%hash)); - syntax OK

Maybe I'm not remembering correctly, but I thought Deparse had it right, not this

$ perl -le " warn scalar(\my %hash)" HASH(0x99aa34) at -e line 1. $ perl -le " warn scalar(\my(%hash))" SCALAR(0x3f4788) at -e line 1. $ perl -MData::Dump -le " dd scalar(\my(%hash))" \undef
