This doesn't seem to happen on Win32 5.8.4 (AS 810). Which version are you using?

Well, I'm running version "5.8.6 built for PA-RISC2.0-thread-multi-LP64", running on HP/UX. I also get the same behaviour for 5.6.1.

But your snippet doesn't actually demonstrate the problem: you get the warning message, but can't actually detect whether the code crashed. Here's what I get when I add a trace statement after the call to substr().

$ perl -wle 'sub foo{}; my $s=""; foo( substr($s,2,1) );print "Not rea +ched\n"' substr outside of string at -e line 1. $
Note that "not reached" is never reached, and is not printed, because the code crashes on the substr() call.
