Fails for me on both CentOS 7 and Darwin (OS X 10.10.5). I see you are
using Apache 2.4 (I was using 2.2).  I tested with Apache 2.4.16 and it
also fails for me on that as well

Server version: Apache/2.4.16 (Unix)

I built perl myself to rule out vendor applied patches to the perl dist.
I wonder if one of the many patches debian applies to perl works around
this issue somehow.  Debian also applies a bunch of patches (18 as of
current dpkg src) to the mod_perl package.  Maybe one of those works
around the issue.  I'll sift through those patches and see if any of
those help.

Are you using debian packages for the CPAN modules at all?  Or did you
install all CPAN packages using a CPAN client?  Because I also wonder if
they patched TryCatch, Devel::Declare, or one of its dependencies to
work around this issue.

Here is the failure on CentOS 7, apache 2.4, perl 5.20.3, mod_perl
2.0.9, all built from scratch, no vendor packages used:

 But you are likely not seeing it because one of:

- vendor patches applied by debian packaging team
- you are using Apache 2.4.  I tested with Apache 2.2.
