List::MoreUtils-0.24 fails on 5.10.1RC0
Message ID:
I don't know if the current maint-5.10 has this problem, but ...

I have been running the "maint-5.10 snapshot (aka 'RC0')" that came out on July 
7 ( ) 
for development and it has worked just fine for me until now.

Today, attempting to install the brand new List::MoreUtils-0.24 using CPANPLUS, 
and it fails its test suite:

Now, List::MoreUtils-0.24 installs with success under 5.10.0/CPANPLUS and 
List::MoreUtils-0.22 installs with success under the above RC0 that 0.24 failed 

Now maybe the current maint doesn't have this incompatability, but I don't have 
that and the RC0 is supposed to be really close to it.  Someone else may want to 
test 0.24 to see where the incompatability is, if maint has it.

Following is the -V for my RC0 install.
