Please review (and maybe even vote on backporting) the sprout/maint-5.20-123029 branch, which contains two fixes:

1) Don’t swipe short PADTMP buffers when COW is disabled.  That was
   never intended to happen, and it is a regression, in that it
   causes a significant slowdown.
2) Check the flags properly and don’t steal buffers from state vars.
