-Wformat, you mean.  I wasn't previously, but I will in the future.  It
turned up a few bugs (some universal, some which would trigger only

Well, the following patch makes it run 4 times as long. The only
failure mode I have seen was silent walking off runops().

Here is the statistics (number of iterations before failure):

   Before:
                23, 24, 14, 22, 19, 13, 30, 11
        (4 core dumps, 2 attempts to free unref scalar, 1 panic:
                leave-scope, 1 silent)
   After:
                42, 936, 63, 131, 280.
        (all silent)

It looks like handling of internal stacks needs a lot of
improvement. What this patch does is only a symptomatic treatment, but
it may go into 004 nevertheless (especially if one can see why op
becomes 0 at some moment). I tried saving/restoring op in the handler,
but this does not help...

Replace that with just

        setpgrp;

This does the same thing and will work on all systems.

I think there's a bug here.  Perl is expecting a pgrp arg of 0 to mean
$$, but it doesn't allow an explicit $$.  Even this seems a little odd,
as on neither system I've got available at the moment is it mentioned
that a 0 pgrp means getpid() (they both mention that a 0 pid means
getpid(), though).

   "e3"
   "."

With this patch perl -lwe 'print int(".")' prints:

   0

as it should and perl still passes all its tests.

Here is another tiny patch to pp_aassign: it preallocates the
array. Memory saving is not very big for the above script (5%), but the
speed advantage may be bigger.

Here is the new data, note the absense of "tails" of growing arrays.

No, all this is wrong. It is 20bytes/elt, and we have stack,
mortals-stack, 1..100000, @a and @b.

Everything is OK now, including <=>.
