This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.18.1.

[Please describe your issue here]

Ran into this while tweaking Carp's localisation of $!:

$ perl -le 'sub aa { local $!; ref($_[0]); 1 } $!=69; aa($!); print 0+$!' 

$! is getting squashed to 0 despite "local $!".  This only happens
if ref() gets applied to the $! argument, in its guise as $_[0].
Doesn't happen with ref($!) or if the argument is something else.
If $! is set to a different value within the dynamic scope of "local
$!", that new value persists after the aa() call, regardless of whether
the new value is assigned before or after the ref($_[0]).  Also, if
"local $!" is removed then ref($_[0]) has no effect on $! (though $! can
still be directly clobbered, of course).  So evidentily the ref($_[0])
is actually breaking the localisation per se.
