BBC(Bleadperl Breaks CPAN) Today: Unicode::Lite
Message ID:

your module Unicode::Lite on CPAN has issues with bleadperl (which is
a nickname for the current development track leading to 5.10). I've
traced the problem back to patch 24660. You can review bleadperl
patches at

The summary of the patch says:

    Change 24660 by nicholas@ship-in-a-bottle on 2005/06/01 14:33:14

	Store the xhv_aux structure after the main array.
	This reduces the size of HV bodies from 24 to 20 bytes on a 32 bit
	build. It has the side effect of defined %symbol_table:: now always
	being true. defined %hash is already deprecated.

Since that patch your test suite fails as can be seen for example in
this test report:

I hope this helps you to understand and fix the problem,
