This works​:

  ➜ .pick xx 10 given 1..6
  (6 3 1 1 5 1 6 3 4 2)

But putting parens around the xx operation, breaks it​:

  ➜ (.pick xx 10) given 1..6
  ((Any) (Any) (Any) (Any) (Any) (Any) (Any) (Any) (Any) (Any))

The problem only seem to occur when $_ was set by a statement modifier - not when it was assigned to manually or set by the block form of 'given'.

An example of a useful idiom which relies on putting parens around an xx operation, is
  (EXPRESSION xx *).first(CONSTRAINT)
for "keep retrying EXPRESSION until the result matches CONSTRAINT".
