[perl #8760]
Message ID:
Here's a weird optree problem for someone, from Jeffrey Friedl...
the old style id was ID 20020304.004,
I just added a new message on the issue:

 Still no resolution for this but I created a cutdown version without using
 the charnames pragma:

  $_ = "foo";
  warn (/bar/i ? "bar" : "no bar");

 and I also spent some time in the debugger and it seems that
 Perl_pp_warn -> Perl_warner -> Perl_vmess -> S_closest_cop
 thinks that CopLINE is zero, and that's why the line and the file
 are not printed.  I have no idea why CopLINE would be zero because
 of case-insensitively matching against a UTF-8-ed scalar (Yes, the /i
 is required.)
