newly crashing test
Message ID:
The new test added in

seems to consistently crash in my OS X boxes:

sh: line 1: 81278 Segmentation fault: 11  /Users/jhi/perl5/perl/perl 
"-I../lib" "tmp81276A" 2>&1

Looks like it has already been found to be problematic in FreeBSD:

Maybe the problem should be fixed before adding the test?

(Adding per-platform exceptions may not be a maintainable solution.)

While in general TODO tests are a good idea, if the test is flakey
and/or potentially resource-grabbing, up to the point of 
machine-killing, maybe less brilliant of an idea.
