  8. keep eval"" CVs alive until the end of the statement in which

    they're called; this avoids a coredump ensuing from search for
    lexicals in code such as:
        sub bug {
    	my $s = @_;
    	eval q[sub { eval 'sub { &$s }' }];
    this code still doesn't work as intended (as it has remained
    since time immemorial), but it doesn't provoke a coredump anymore
