I have a simple and repro testcase with a fresh un-rebased perl-5.10.1.
This makes it impossible to get through the testsuite, which always
$ ./perl -Ilib -MPOSIX -e '`perl -e "exit 42"`; print $? >> 8'
fails with the fork error
3 [main] perl 1756 fork: child -1 - died waiting for longjmp
before initialization, retry 0, exit code 0xC0000005, errno 11
Without the dlopened POSIX.dll:
$ ./perl -e '`./perl -e "exit 42"`; print $? >> 8'
Official rebased perl-5.10.0:
$ perl -MPOSIX -e '`perl -e "exit 42"`; print $? >> 8'
