This isn't an IO::Scalar problem, it's a self-tie problem.  Haven't
had a lot of time to look at it, perhaps someone who knows something
about self-ties could take a look?  The change to the sv_magic call in
broke self-tied globs (and I think scalars) one way; the change to tie
the pvio not the pvgv broke self-tied globs another way.  I think the
fix will lie in adding additional non-refcounted cases to sv_magicext
but am not sure that will work right for globs.  And I haven't yet
found the code that handled mg_obj for self-tied objects being Nullsv. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
