Oops. Sorry. It appears I attached a completely wrong patch file -
against my working copy, not against blead at all.  Fortunately it
seems you have been clever enough to extract most of what I intended -
but there are some further tweaks I made (mostly to get it to work on
perl 5.6.1).

OK. I though I did a successful rsync before I started, but I will check.

The MANIFEST needs patching to add the new test files too.

I'll generate a new patch against blead next time I'm in front of a
suitable machine (may not be until the weekend).

Definitely due to the "const char* file = __FILE__;" - I rolled that
change back to check.

I'll work on something and provide it along with an updated patch file.
