The following script also produces similar results:

perl -e 'my $x = q[if ($h->{ALPHA}->{BETA}->{q{stuff}}) {] . "\n" . q[
stuff($h, @_);] . "\n}\n\n"; $x x= 7238; $x =~ s/stuff/"stuff" .
++$count/eg; eval $x' 

Adjusting the x= XXXX makes a bit more flexible test case.  7238 doesn't
crash, but 7239 does.
