:Ok, I get it now. Your perl is /opt/v5.32.0-d/bin/perl. But your
:script references the system perl in your $PATH.
Ah no, the script I used referenced the same perl explicitly; I reduced
that to 'perl' to share it in the email.
Just to confirm I ran it using $^X instead, and again got 30 copies of
'fmpdvjxiezlghkrotnyasuqwbc'. I get the same result (30 copies of some
string, not necessarily the same one) with several other locally installed

System perl is 5.26.1 with 67 registered patches (Ubuntu 18.04.4), and
that gives 10 triples similar to your output:
% PERL_HASH_SEED_DEBUG=1 perl -e 1
HASH_FUNCTION = HYBRID_OAATHU_SIPHASH_1_3 HASH_SEED = 0x645353b08bcb9b82a48ecf87816cffb48a58faeaa1c191c8 PERTURB_KEYS = 1 (RANDOM)
This all feels like a distraction though: it all focuses on some
unexpectedly deterministic results, when the bit I was asking about
related to the unexpectedly _non-deterministic_ results.
