I suspect a serious upstream regression in destructive substr handling
with certain string lengths 10-14. (which is incidently exactly the
area I tried to fix earlier)

This is a normal pure-perl substr, which is failing in certain string lengths.

See https://github.com/rurban/Devel-PeekPoke/commit/8099054c964dd0a62805f27be06bbe49bbe7f452

Please hold 5.20.1 until this is analyzed.
