finding the cause of error appeared to be easier than I thought.

When I traced into file IO operations usage I found that perl IO subsystem uses "fast_gets" and iterates pointers itself, but this is not applicable for (at least) Borland.

After that I studied config files and found out that when I specified parameters closer to those for MSVC++ that behaviour gone away. Namely, I defined "d_stdio_ptr_lval_nochange_cnt" and error gone away.

Patch is attached. Now can of worms for Borland is twice smaler.
Despite of subject, it is made against perl@11059
