Math::BigInt new does something funny when creating a new object from an existing Math::BigInt object:
#!perl use strict; use warnings; use Math::BigInt; my $x = new Math::BigInt 27; my $y = $x->new(44); # this is the funny bit my $z = Math::BigInt->new(99); exit;

From the debugger, this is what $y is:
DB<1> x $y 0 27=HASH(0x14f15ac) 'sign' => '+' 'value' => ARRAY(0xbc9cd4) 0 44

Why is the class now '27'? And a print on $y gives:
DB<2> p $y 27=HASH(0x14f15ac)

While the 'value' is right, any further operations with $y are wrong.

Update: Bug reported here.
