My home PC. I've done some more digging ...

PASS 2021-12-09 22:00:04+00
FAIL 2021-12-10 22:00:04+00

That was the day that I updated my tcsh to 6.23.01

20657538 -rwxr-xr-x 2 merijn users 400240 2022-01-04 20:16:50 tcsh

perl-current > ./perl -Ilib -V:csh
csh='tcsh';

so *something* most likely has changed in the interaction. On the prompt itself, 

tcsh> ls -ld t/"TEST"
-rwxr-xr-x 1 merijn users 29286 Dec 14 16:20 t/TEST

works in all versions, but not in the test case on line 136

        my $output1 = eval q{ glob(q(./"TEST")) };

removing the double-quotes does not make any difference, neither does
going back to tcsh-6.23.00, so *maybe* it is something that changed in
my .tcshrc , but I cannot find anything that is related and moving it
out of scope does change the outcome.
