Dan, Karl:

I would like to reconsider this patch, specifically, to make it apply to FreeBSD versions 11.0 and greater.

As you know, I have been smoketesting FreeBSD 10.3 since August.  That includes both automated testing and reporting to as well as manual testing of blead within a VM.  On 10.3 I have not observed the problem you describe.  In contrast, as I mentioned on #p5p, when run on 11.0, the tests in t/re/*.t are highly likely to lock up my system.

So I think we should make the test more version-specific.

Thank you very much.
