+Failures while compiling code within other constructs, such as with
+string interpolation and the right part of C<s///e> now cause
+compilation to abort earlier.
+Previously compilation could continue in order to report other errors,
+but the failed sub-parse could leave partly parsed constructs on the
+parser shift-reduce stack, confusing the parser, leading to perl
+crashes. [perl #125351]
