This fixes the incorrect warning given in this case:

I don't know.
It changes a warning. So in one sense it's a new warning.
[And sadly it wouldn't surprise me if somewhere someone is grepping out that
'not' warning, and so would get copious error logs or other "fun" if it

I'd like 5.10. Then I could avoid thinking about this. :-)
I sympathize.

I'm checking all the patches I've submitted for maintworthiness, and
it looks like these should go in:

and the more substantial:

Add sv_2iv_flags() to allow magic to be optionally processed.
Branch: perl
! doop.c embed.fnc embed.h global.sym pod/perlapi.pod pp.c
! proto.h sv.c sv.h t/op/bop.t

You had some idea to combine various functions instead of just adding
an sv_2iv_flags, I know, but that sounds like something to work on in

Also, this patch didn't make the Oct 16th cutoff, but is doc-only:
