So, perl users have now reported this issue against 5.28.x twice.  We've
fixed the problem in 5.30, but left if unaddressed in 5.28.

What's the advantage of taking no action and closing this ticket instead
of backporting the fix to origin/maint-5.28?  I don't know the
backporting policy well, but this strikes me as a missed opportunity.
