This is a bug report for perl from l.mai@web.de,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.24.1.


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

$ perl -wE '$_ = 2 x ("inf" + 0); say "[$_]"'                                                                    
Non-finite repeat count does nothing at -e line 1.
[]

Good.

$ perl -wE '$_ = 2 x "inf"; say "[$_]"'                                                                          
[]

No warning here. I think this is a bug because the right operand of x should be
in numeric context anyway.
