Good point. I thought it better to adapt your sample code, rather than adding
a whole new test script, so it's in as change 30608.

5.8.9 isn't a line, so much as the not-yet-made release on the 5.8.x line,
the current stable release line. In the past Debian have been rather fast
at updating their stable perl with changes merged to maint between official
5.8.x releases, so they may already have this change. This may have changed,
I'm mostly not using Debian systems.
