IO::Socket::ByteCounter installs without incident against blead (v5.31.1-106-g0be0ef8f51) on FreeBSD-11.

However, I can confirm that there are indefinite hangs in the test file on Linux.

The test file in question is, IMHO, set up in a surprising manner.  (I've attached a version of it hacked up with print statements for debugging.)  It's an if-elsif-else block where *both* the 'if' and 'elsif' blocks are entered.  (I don't do enough fork-ing to know whether that's right or wrong.)  When I run the file on Linux, I get:

$ bleadperl -Iblib/lib t/IO-Socket-ByteCounter.t 
ok 1 - use IO::Socket::ByteCounter;
ok 2 - record_bytes

Thank you very much.
