List​::MoreUtils​::XS has acquired a new test failure at core commit
16ada23 "fix GvSV refcounting in sort".
On affected core versions, its test suite shows

t/xs/occurrences.t .......... 1/? perl​: sv.c​:6506​: Perl_sv_clear​: Assertion `((svtype)((sv)->sv_flags & 0xff)) != (svtype)0xff' failed.
t/xs/occurrences.t .......... All 8 subtests passed

Examining this is complicated by another test failure that shows up
earlier, with debugging builds​:

t/xs/arrayify.t ............. panic​: XSUB List​::MoreUtils​::XS​::arrayify (XS.c) failed to extend arg stack​: base=23e9968, sp=23e99f8, hwm=23e99e0
t/xs/arrayify.t ............. Dubious, test returned 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)
No subtests run

I'm pretty sure that the arrayify.t failure would happen with 5.27.6,
though the distro tested just fine on a non-debugging 5.27.6. I'll have a
look at that later. There are also some compilation warnings on threading
builds, picking up definite bugs, that don't cause test failures.
Those are also preexisting and out of scope for this ticket.

I believe the failure arises because List​::MoreUtils​::XS itself has
a bunch of refcount-breaking writes to GvSV of *a and *b, apparently
cribbed from pp_sort. Some of the subs localise their changes to $a and
$b, but some do not. In particular, the "reduce" functions are liable
to set $a to a mortal scalar, and leave $a side-effected to refer to
the now-dead scalar. pp_sort later gets invoked, and some of the new
refcounting logic notices that the $a scalar that it's trying to save
and restore is already dead. There are multiple existing bugs there
for List​::MoreUtils​::XS to fix.

I've opened [rt.cpan.org #123868] for List-MoreUtils-XS, regarding its
refcounting bugs.

The other assertion failure that I found already has an rt.cpan.org
ticket, with a patch.

List-MoreUtils-XS installs for me without problem on perl-5.29.2. And it appears to be doing well on other Perl versions and platforms (http​://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=List-MoreUtils-XS).

I don't see any remaining core distribution issue, so I'm closing this ticket.

Thank you very much.
