I was going to try it on some code of mine that can make 5.8.8 segfault.
Unfortunately, it appears to get stuck in the lib/Benchmark test when I
build with -de on Linux.

Now, this is on a virtual machine, which can mess with timings, but I
would expect that test to either pass or fail, not get wedged.

For now, I've renamed it to Benchmark.t~ so that test should skip.  I'll
report more later.

Nicholas - if you want access to a guest account on that machine to
investigate further, email me off-list.
