Since @.patch=8297 this test still fails:

op/numconvert........FAILED at test 13
lib/encode...........FAILED at test 2696
lib/filecopy.........Scalars leaked: 1
lib/io_linenum.......Scalars leaked: 1
lib/io_multihomed....Scalars leaked: 1
Failed 2 test scripts out of 275, 99.27% okay.

I might find some time (don't hope too much, I'm getting the key to my new home
tomorrow) to delve in this casting stuff if you can give me a framework to work
on.
