Confirmed.  ef7999f causes a compilation failure in a situation where 5.20.1 does not.

I have translated the code in the CPAN distribution which suffered the failure into a patch to t/op/chop.t.  blead will experience a syntax error and compilation failure when you try to run that test file.

#####
$ cd t;./perl harness -v op/chop.t;cd -
Can't modify split in chomp at op/chop.t line 271, near "))"
Execution of op/chop.t aborted due to compilation errors.
Dubious, test returned 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)
No subtests run 

Test Summary Report
-------------------
op/chop.t (Wstat: 65280 Tests: 0 Failed: 0)

  Parse errors: No plan found in TAP output
Files=1, Tests=0,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.01 usr +  0.00 sys =  0.01 CPU)

Thank you very much.
