This is a bug in the module's test files.  The blamed commit is actually a bug fix for the module.  This same problem surfaced earlier, and details of the problem are here:
https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=121317#txn-1284765

The author did not fix anything, so I created a patch to the module this time
https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=97607
It's been 5 years since the module was updated; some issues marked critical are in its RT queue.  This patch may fix some of them.
