This is a bug report for perl from jpeacock@cpan.org,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.14.2.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

A recent CPAN smoke report:

http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/6efd9ed4-dee4-11e2-8b74-6f4c697f9654

pointed to a regression in LC_NUMERIC that affects the version.pm tests.

I have a cut down test from the version.pm distro (that doesn't rely on
anything except setlocale) attached.  I don't believe that I am doing 
anything unsupported (and this test has worked up until 5.19.1 was 
released).

John
