In the current version of perl, two of three aren't fixed, and that is
going to be fixed is probably the result of this discussion. Even if it
isn't, until today there was no sign, no discussion, no acknowledgement.

Me neither. But that isn't a problem for me. Really.

No, I experience that bug at least since that version, make test is broken
on my systems since that long.

I don't want you to look at these. Really. I want two things:

a) a working perl
b) not being accused of whining around

And the latter is actually making me angry.

Well, I am alos not sure, and Raphael also wasn't sure, so I asked (see
the mail archives if you INSIST), but of course nobody was interested.

No, I am not happy. I don't know what you are trying to do here. Not every
posting of mine to this list is a bug-report. And you still seem to imply
that I am whining around, which is not the case. Also 2 != 1. Doing time
travel is no excuse.
