Since the ‘new ticket’ feature seems to have disappeared from RT, I’m going to be naughty and reopen this ticket.  I have changed the subject to be more informative.

PDL is also affected.  The build does not fail, but image2d.t fails like this:

t/image2d.t ..................... 1/29 
#   Failed test 'patchbad2d'
#   at t/image2d.t line 126.
# Looks like you failed 1 test of 29.
t/image2d.t ..................... Dubious, test returned 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)
Failed 1/29 subtests 

as of this commit:
