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

t/setup.t

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

http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/fc557bbe-3159-11e2-ba43-888fa290f8f5

You can read more about the change at
http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/commit/7dc8663964c66a698d31bbdc8e8abed69bddeec3
or at http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=1005122

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

HTH&&Thanks&&Regards,

Owner

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)
