Threaded bleads broken on HP-UX 11.31 by commit 7258295b51ee7
Message ID:

    on        HP-UX - B.11.31/64
    using     ccache cc version B3910B A.06.28.02
    smoketime 3 hours 31 minutes (average 26 minutes 25 seconds)

lots of compiler warnings, but it all ends with this:

Last  smoke PASS               was 5.29.0-88-g6b877bbd2c
First smoke FAIL (with m or M) was 5.29.0-93-g6d37e916c3

$ git diff 6b877bbd2c 6d37e916c3

shows me that this is the commit that most likely caused the breakage:

commit 7258295b51ee7cac64553fcbcee5e51bd204fbbf
Author: Karl Williamson <>
Date:   Sat Jul 14 13:05:52 2018 -0600

    Make global two interpreter variables

    These variables are constant, once initialized, through the life of a
    program, so having them be per instance is a waste of time and space
