From dhd@plcom.on.ca

Hi,

Applying capturing regular expressions to references does something
rather strange​:

[dhd@​willow]~ $ perl -le '$f=[1]; print $f; while ($f =~ /(\w+)/g) {print $1}'
ARRAY(0x80cb97c)
øl@​ø
@​80cb97c

It's evidently failing to stringify the scalar. As another example (and this
one may be more annoying since we usually don't mess with the stringified
form of bare references)​:

[dhd@​willow]~ $ perl -le 'package Foo; use overload q("") => sub { "FOO" }; $f = bless [1], "Foo"; print "stringify -> $f"; while ($f =~ /(\w+)/g) {print $1}'
stringify -> FOO
Øé

This is with the Debian GNU/Linux package of Perl 5.005_03.

It's evidently failing to stringify the scalar.

Evidently, not, as omiting //g shows. Something is fishy with pos()
on a reference. Is it wise to just plain prohibit it?
