[ID 19991118.013] Tied hash can't be accessed via glob
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.26 running under perl 5.00502.

[Please enter your report here]

I tie a hash, then return the glob that contains it.  
Access to the hash through the glob ignores the tie.

	my $glob = P::new;
	$glob->{'please die'} = 'now';
	die "It didn't work.\n";
	package P;
	sub new {
	  tie %F => P;
	sub TIEHASH {
	  bless \"dummy" => P;
	sub STORE {
	  die "I am the STORE method\n";

This package P ties the hash %F, then returns the glob *F.  Access to
%F via the glob should invoke P::STORE, which will abort the program,
but P::STORE is never called.  

The behavior is the same on 5.005_02, _55, _56, _57, _61, and _62.
