             [ 19851]
             Fix [perl #21742] :
             require() should always be called in scalar context,
             even when it's the last statement in an eval("").
             
             [ 19852]
             Enhance some macro robustness.

             [ 19277]
             Fix bug #21347 (segfault in UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD with qr//)
             by adding a dummy destructor method Regexp::DESTROY.
             This prevents infinite recursion, since Regexp::DESTROY
             is no more autoloaded.

             [ 19830]
             Retract #19785 and #19756: JPL nowadays works without this
             (verified by a true JPL user).
             
             [ 19831]
             More Perl malloc debugging magic from Ilya.  Seems to work in
             Linux, Solaris, AIX.  Had to do #ifdef OS2 for the <io.h> in
             malloc.c, found in AIX since there is no such header.
             In Tru64 miniperl fails an assert: "free()ed/realloc()ed-away
             memory was overwritten?"
             (In IRIX compiles but that doesn't prove much since in IRIX
             Perl's malloc is simply not used.)
             
             [ 19832]
             Show the source code location of an "assertion botch".
             
             [ 19833]
             Don't do sprintf().
             
             [ 19834]
             Allow for things like -DFILL_CHECK_DEFAULT=0 (from Ilya).
             
             [ 19835]
             For characters beyond the BMP the $bits will be undef,
             which will cause utf8_heavy.pl noise (reported by Daniel Yacob,
             analysis and fix from SADAHIRO Tomoyuki)
             
             [ 19836]
             Debian fix from Brendan O'Dea:
             Bug#156284: the stucture used by pp_accept is too small to hold an
             IPv6 address.
             
             [ 19837]
             Debian fix from Brendan O'Dea:
             Use a temporary directory to avoid symlink attacks.
             Specify -gstabs explicitly (not the default format for gcc 3.2).
             
             [ 19838]
             Debian fix from Brendan O'Dea:
             Adjust output to screen width.
             (adjusted to probe for the stty command)
