Here's one case:

cpan[5]> test Config::Vars
Running test for module 'Config::Vars'

#                   'Global symbol "$cat" requires explicit package name (did you forget to declare "my $cat"?) at (eval 11) line 2.
# '
#     doesn't match '(?^:^Global symbol "\$cat\" requires explicit package name at)'
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 2.
