in thread tr funkiness in 5.6.[12] (but not 5.6.0!)

How about an explanation, as indicated in the original message?
The answer "it's a bug", as indicated in the first reply isn't good enough? If you want details of what caused the bug, get a git clone of the perl source, and run 'git-bisect' between 5.6.0 and 5.6.1 to see which commit first triggers the unwanted behaviour.

    Not really, no. It's a bit like saying "Because." Following Dominus' pearl of wisdom
    #11943 Ah yes, and you are the first person to have noticed this bug since 1987. Sure.
    I posted the question to see if anyone had any prior knowledge of the matter; after having conducted a search of course.

    Thank you anyways,
