new directory names, and hence did not properly deduce which files are
architecture-dependent.  This was compounded by Configure's failure to

is used to initialize @INC to privlib, sitelib and vendorlib locations

Perl will also automatically add versioned Perl directories in the

This keeps the ptr-table table around after the thread has been created.
This has been on for user threads for a while now, but not for
Windows forks. Turns out that Variable::Magic relies on the table still
being there, so crashes under windows forks.  This increases memory usage
per fork, but stops things crashing. Sigh.
