Heureka!/D'oh!  No, I didn't solve the bug but I just had revelation
that may help in crushing the critter: with the patch the coredumps
hit only if I'm using -DDEBUGGING -g.  (Yes, both in maintperl and
bleadperl).  No coredump with the default options and the patch.

The reason why I have been using the -DDEBUGGING -g lately all the
time in Tru64 is that I have been trying to track down (genuinely)
bleadperl "membads" with the Third Degree.
