Yes, and my comments in rejecting this ticket were based on ignorance. I'm sorry. Though it still should have been rejected, as it still doesn't appear to me to be a core Perl bug. I looked in more detail at the first error in the CPAN report. It is this:

# Failed test 'to_ascii('ß。𐋳ⴌ\u1DD8') throws error P1 V6 [data/IdnaTest.txt:992]'
# at t/uts46_to_ascii-trans.t line 765.
# got: 'ss.xn--weg506dvy5n'
# expected: undef

I looked at that line in the .t file, and it is this:

𐋳ⴌ\x{1DD8}", %p)}, undef, "to_ascii\(\'ß\。𐋳ⴌ\\u1DD8\'\)\ throws\ error\ P1\ V6\ \[data\/IdnaTest\.txt\:992\]") or ($@ and diag($@));

(Most likely you will not have the fonts to display all of this correctly. the one character I don't have in my fonts is U+102F3, COPTIC EPACT NUMBER ONE HUNDRED, newly encoded in Unicode 7.0. I got that far before, and just assumed the test was supposed to return undef because the code point had not been encoded before, but now is. But I was wrong. There is another reason it is supposed to be undef.

Line 992 from the Unicode 7.0 IdnaTest.txt file is this:
B; ß。𐋳ⴌ\u1DD8; [P1 V6]; [P1 V6] # ß.𐋳ⴌᷘ

(BTW, thanks for cross referencing the line number of the Unicode file in the .t test; it made this a lot easier.)

The brackets indicate that this is supposed to fail, and the codes within the brackets indicate why. I started to follow why it should fail, but it wasn't obvious without more digging than I had time for. So perhaps the test from Unicode is wrong, or the module is buggy. I see that the .t correctly gets failure with the preceeding, similar tests,
