I now modernized the patch and applied it (#11212) but more work is
still needed.  As Graham pointed out close to four years ago, this
patch is only a partial solution to the original problem detailed in

http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de/mailing-lists/perl5-porters/1997-11/msg00167.html

Someone who knows how Safe works should work on the "method cache"
issue.  Also, I wouldn't mind a test patch exercizing the change.
(The change didn't break the current Safe tests.)
