This is a bug report for perl from dsb@vmslack10.boyski.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.7.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

The flag "-Vue1" causes perl 5.8.7 to dump core. I noticed this
when running "perl -Vusemymalloc" and forgetting the colon, then later
trimmed it down to -Vue1 (where the "1" can be anything). No problem
with the correct flag (perl -V:usemymalloc) but it still shouldn't core.
