Re: [perl #129933] [PATCH] t/uni/overload.t: Skip hanging test onFreeBSD
Message ID:

This is a new test that was only merged in this morning. I'd appreciate you
testing commit 111da7867, and specifically t/uni/overload.t, and if it
doesn't hang on your VM, we can consider disabling the test only for
FreeBSD 11 and greater.
