This was broken by change 33656 (http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/commitdiff/dca6062a863d0 
) moves labels to the hints hash.

Here’s another example of the same bug, which shows that that it has  
nothing to do with $_:

perl5.12.0 -le 'F1:++$x and eval q"print qq/x is $x/;  exit if ++$y ==  
10; goto q/F1/;"'
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1
x is 1

In short,
	Foo: eval "goto Foo"
doesn’t go to Foo, but simply repeats the eval.

I tried making S_dofindlabel skip any op that == PL_eval_start, but  
that prevents eval "Foo: print q/foo/; goto Foo" from working.

In other words, the goto inside the eval cannot tell the difference  
between
	Foo: eval " ... "
and
	eval "Foo: ... "

It seems to have something to do with %^H not being synchronised with  
the equivalent internal structure, because putting BEGIN{ delete $^H 
{anything} } at the beginning of the evalled code fixes it.

The attached patch is perhaps not the best fix, but works around the  
bug in a way that can’t cause any negative side-effects.
