It seems to be a regression in eglibc, not in perl itself. My guess is
the fix for #654783 in 2.13-31, but it's definitely between -27 and -32.
Trying on kfreebsd-amd64 (asdfasdf.debian.net), the test passes
consistently in the wheezy chroot (libc0.1_2.13-27) and fails most of
the time in the sid one (libc0.1_2.13-32). If I LD_PRELOAD libpthread.so
from wheezy, the tests start to pass in sid, and vice versa: LD_PRELOADing
the sid libpthread.so in wheezy makes the test fail.
I don't have a C test case yet, not sure how soon I can pull one
together. Help is appreciated.
