Is it just a coincidence and just my problem that within the last

Time::HiRes, Graph, Statistics-Shannon: pretty independent modules,
only first of them XS, the middle one complex pure Perl, the last one
pure Perl and pretty trivial, and which one I haven't touched for ages?
The failures look nonsensical, but I'll try compiling a 64-bitint Perl
somewhere and see. The perls of the testers are 5.8.8 and 5.10.0.
I use Time::HiRes a lot and Graph occasionally both also on 64bitall
Just checked with 5.8.8-64all and 5.11.0-64all and no errors whatsoever

Normally all my perls are non-threaded, but I have blead installed as
