The last time I can find this being addressed here was in 2003 in 
, but there doesn't appear to have been a resolution.  I couldn't 
find open bugs on a subject seach, so I'm putting this in just on the 
principle that there ought to be a better response than segfaulting:

$ perl -e 'delete $main::{"foo::"}; push @foo::ISA, "bar"'
Segmentation fault
