This is a bug report for perl from sergey.aleynikov@gmail.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.25.9.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

While fuzzing perl v5.25.8-216-gfbceb79751 built with afl and run
under libdislocator, I found the following program

s//'x' ^ -"s:\347"/eeg

to cause a memory leak report under ASAN:

=================================================================
==27209==ERROR: LeakSanitizer: detected memory leaks

Direct leak of 4 byte(s) in 1 object(s) allocated from:
    #0 0x4ea6c8 in malloc (/home/afl/afl-asan/perl+0x4ea6c8)
    #1 0x8504be in Perl_safesysmalloc /home/afl/afl-asan/util.c:153:21

(/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6+0x202b0)

SUMMARY: AddressSanitizer: 4 byte(s) leaked in 1 allocation(s).

Leaked scalar comes from the following line

pl_yylval.pval = savepvn(PL_tokenbuf, len+1);

In this case PL_tokenbuf is "Us" and len == 2. Amount of memory leaked
scales with the size of this buffer. For example, the following
eternal loop leaks 20 bytes per iteration, so run it with caution:

s//'x' ^ -"s666666666666666k:\347"/eeg while (1)
