When relying on the @INC including the current working directory base no longer follows the same resolution path as use, leading to very complex and difficult to debug error messages.  It moreover no longer even follows its existing documentation and this leads to very strange, ordering-dependent bugs which will break a *lot* of software.

Please fix it properly or not at all.  This idea of mostly supporting . in the INC but not really is going to cause a lot of people a LOT of headache and lead to systems which are not really any more securable.

See my blog post on the problems with this fix
