     PATCH: [perl #134059] panic outputting a warning
     This was due to a logic error on my part.  We need to save and restore a
     value.  Instead, it was getting restored to the wrong value.
     This particular instance of the bug was outputting a fatal error
     message, so that the only harm is not giving the user the correct info,
     and creating unnecessary work for them and us when it gets reported.
     But this bug could manifest itself when trying to output just a warning
     that the program otherwise would carry on from.
