FWIW, I _don't_ see the failure. It seems to occur ONLY if perl was
built with threading support (ithreads). Without ithreads, I can't
reproduce it (I've tried enabling and disabling multiplicity with no
effect, so it's not that).
Ithreads seem to be the default on many linux package builds of perl.
It is _not_ the default on FreeBSD.
