Triggered with Perl v5.25.7-98-gdf13534 while fuzzing with AFL.

./perl test575
Operator or semicolon missing before *T at test575 line 1.
Ambiguous use of * resolved as operator * at test575 line 1.
perl​: sv.c​:10056​: char *Perl_sv_pvn_force_flags(SV *const, STRLEN *const,
const I32)​: Assertion `PL_valid_types_PVX[((svtype)((_svpvx)->sv_flags &
0xff)) & 0xf]' failed.
Aborted

It only seems to fail like that once every 10-15 executions, otherwise I
see messages like these​:
Operator or semicolon missing before *T at test575 line 1.
Ambiguous use of * resolved as operator * at test575 line 1.

Brian, please note that in almost all cases we've seen so far such variability is down to hash ordering. If you set the environment variable PERL_HASH_SEED to a fixed value for fuzzing, you'll get more reliable results - and I expect minimization will also work better.

(If you do set this, please make sure the value is mentioned in the bug reports, of course. :)

Can be reduced to​:
  map
  1,
  %x = (a => 1, b => undef),
  %x = (Y => 'Z'),

It's another stack-not-refcounted issue.
