Since bleadperl v5.17.5-518-g7dc8663 your tests are failing frequently.
That commit introduced hash key randomization and it seems at least the test


is hit by that. Find a sample fail report at:


You can read more about the change at
or at http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=1005122

You may have to run the test several times until the randomization causes a fail.

Fixed in 1.47, thank you!
(strangely, I've seen both cpantesters errors and the perl-porters thread about hash randomisation test issues before, but didn't connect the two, heh)
