I'd suggest

    #118213: /$qr/p broken under 5.18.0

    my $pat = qr/a/;
    'aaaa' =~ /$pat/gp or die;
    print "MATCH=[${^MATCH}]\n";

prints 'a' in 5.16.0, undef in 5.18.0.

I've just fixed it in blead with 5b0e71e9d5, and I've just pushed a
2-commit maint-5.18 variant available as davem/maint-5.18-118213, should
it be deemed suitable for maint (which I think it definitely should), and
should it be deemed suitable for 5.18.1 (which is more debatable, given
that the fix hasn't had time to be smoked, BBC'd etc, and that 5.18.1 is
due RSN.)

My Dad used to say 'always fight fire with fire', which is probably why
he got thrown out of the fire brigade.
