I ran 5.12-RC5 against t/japh/abigail.t. A couple of them failed because
split in scalar context no longer splits to @_.
However, there's another failure; a reduced version of it is:
$ perl-5.10.1 -wE '$_ = "goto F.say chop;\n=X";F1:eval'
$ perl-5.12-RC5 -wE '$_ = "goto F.say chop;\n=X";F1:eval'
followed by an infinite amount of newlines.
I haven't been able to reduce this to a smaller piece of code. But it
looks like the eval is working on a copy of $_ which doesn't get updated
when the chop modifies $_.
