             Detypo.
             
             [ 19512]
             make it easier to reproduce the bug
             
             [ 19511]
             the \do {local *FH} trick in Tie::File was really only needed
             on 5.005 and earlier, since later versions can autovivify
             the handle
             
             however, a search in the p5p archives reveals the trick doesn't
             fully work in the versions it is needed in, so use the more
             standard Symbol::gensym() way
             
             [ 19510]
             $Config{usethreads} wasn't being set on windows
             
             [ 19509]
             Reinstate the #19498 but now skip the crashing
             tests (when threaded) as TODOs.
             
             [ 19508]
             Revert #19498 since it broke threaded builds.
             
             [ 19506]
             Detypo Pantherisms.
             
             [ 19503]
             Use a more sophisticated heuristics to produce the warning
             'Parentheses missing around "%s" list'. This fixes bug #22147.
             Also, the warning is now produced for C<local *a,*b;>.
             
             [ 19502]
             Work also without perlio.
             
             [ 19500]
             Panther preparation.
             
             [ 19499]
             More moves to intrpvar.h.
             
             [ 19498]
             fix for Tie::File test failures on windows: the problem was
             that Tie::File did not close any file handles it opens internally,
             leading to file handle leaks and t/tf* temporary file littering;
             we now close the handle iff Tie::File opened it
             
             this fix unearths what appears to be a perl bug in localizing globs:
             09_gen_rs.t fails due to a prematurely closed filehandle, although
             it wasn't explicitly closed anywhere by the code (renaming the
             *FH at line 97 to *FH1 makes it work, but I haven't done this
             to allow the bug to be tracked down)
             
             [ 19497]
             Move the thread *hook into interpreter.
             
             [ 19496]
             Subject: [PATCH] [perl #7391] Perl crashes with certain write() formats.
             From: Dave Mitchell <davem@fdgroup.com>

             Open UNIX is not really "formerly Unixware", since the most
             recent releases are known as Unixware, not as Open UNIX.
             
             [ 19494]
             Slight tweaks to the platform list.
             
             [ 19493]
             Subject: Re: [PATCH] [perl #8636] [perl #8634] Both patches together for perlop
             From: Casey West <casey@geeknest.com>

             perlport.pod nit for doc bug #8253.

             [ 19475]
             Fix for bugs 21717 and 22140.
             Win32's lseek claims to have succeeded in pipes etc. Which confuses :perlio
             and derived layers. So have :unix's "pushed" method stat() the fd and 
             cache non S_ISREG nature. Have Unix_seek fail if fd is NOT S_ISREG to match 
             UNIX behaviour.
             
             [ 19479]
             Better but still unproven fix for lseek() on pipes.

             [ 19484]
             fix Embed.t failure on windows: PERL_SYS_TERM() is implemented
             in terms of an exported function rather than as an inlined
             macro (latter wants PL_op_mutex which isn't exported as such)

             A regression test for the remaining "Final $ should be..." error.

             Remove the error messages "Final @ should be \@ or @name"
             and "Final % should be \% or %name", that appear to be
             only produced in addition to another syntax error, and therefore
             misleading, if I understand correctly that kind of black magic.

             Solaris: make -Duse64bitall'ed to have an archname of

             to suffix anything with -Duse64bitall if longs are 64 bit.
             This may lead into confusion and much sorrow if 32-bit binaries
             and 64-bit binaries are installed under the same directories.
             Why is "-64" or something like that the default?  Well, there
             are platforms where 64 bits really is the default default.
             There adding a "-64" would be kind of odd.  Better to let

             Detecting errors of reentrant APIs: getgrgid_r and the like
             when returning an int can either return the error in the return
             value or in the errno.  We need a new per-interp variable to store
             the return value instead of clobbering the errno with it.  The new
             variable, PL_reentrant_retint, is only used within the reentrancy
             framework, and immediately after it's set, so there should not be
             similar visibility issues as for the errno.  Spotted by Edward Moy.
