nice, but apparently it's not the only problem. Run:

   t/TEST -order=random -times=5

with sid 170482341 and there are loads of failures including a core dump.

since -order=random is random, it's possible that the tests will pass 
one time but not another. Therefore I think to get a better chance of 
various order coverage, we need to run -times=100 and more.

This particular sequence that I've reported before still deterministicly 
fails with a core dump:

   t/TEST modperl/exit filter/input_msg modperl/exit
