Ilya said, that what you saw could typically only be seen with
PERL_DESTRUCT_LEVEL > 2. But this doesn't mean, that somebody actually
set it intentionally to that value. It's just as well possible that
some storage area became currupted and accidentally changed the value
while simultaneously the whole running program became unusable.
