More likely a mistake in my assumptions.  I’ll look into it.

Basically, when you write:

    my $x;
    sub { $x }

it should be possible for the newly-created sub to share its list of
variable names with every other sub created by that line, since it is
theoretically immutable at run time.

So I made it do that to make closure creation slightly faster.

But apparently something isn’t working quite right.
