Umm, much as I hate being the tider of bad news, with that patch and on a
-Dusemymalloc build, this code:

    for my $index (8114,8119) {
	my $c = chr($index);
	my $a = uc $c;
    warn "exiting\n";


$ ./perl -Ilib /tmp/
assertion botched (chunk's tail overwrite?): ((caddr_t)ovp + nbytes - sizeof (unsigned int))[i] == 0x55 (malloc.c:2075)
