Hmm, either that was funny or it wasn't.

I've no idea. If I change *anything* the test passes. Trying to switch to a different perl means I need to set the libs explicitly and if I do that, it passes. Of course, just listing "diag $]" to make sure I have the right Perl causes it to pass even in 5.8.8, so I can't tell.
Checking out a fresh branch has caused the test failure rate to drop from 1 in 5 to about 1 in 8, so that's progress, I guess :/
I'm having bell tower/deer rifle fantasies right about now.
