This used to be valid and warning-free until recently:

--8<--- test.pod
=head1 TEST

=head2 Return values

=over 4

=item undef

The return value is undefined

=item 0

The return value i numerical 0 (OK).

=item *

Any other value.

=back

=cut
-->8---

Now it gives me TWO errors and dies:

$ pod2text test.pod
TEST
  Return values
    undef
        The return value is undefined

test.pod around line 11: Expected text after =item, not a number
    0   The return value i numerical 0 (OK).

test.pod around line 15: Expected text after =item, not a bullet
    *   Any other value.

POD document had syntax errors at /pro/bin/pod2text line 82.
