If that patch wasn't right (correct) then the new patch can't be corretc
either, as the memory fence has to be a superset of the acquire and release
But, by pure symmetry, it is likely correct, and then more efficient.
Thanks for researching this further!

Ah right, so that was you.... Well, the best for everybody is to not think
about it, I guess.

5.8.8 is really old, given that we have this superbly fine 5.8.9 release :)
But then, I have seen systems ship woth 5.8.7 (which is quite broken, much
worse than 5.8.6 for example), so I guess you should count yourself lucky
to have such a slim perl available to you.

No, AIX was just too strong an experience for me to ever forget it :)

I am sure I tried, because I keep a log these days, because last year,
there were a few other incidents like this (should have been released,
but wasn't), and to make sure it isn't me just getting old, I started a
log. So, cpan-upload, for some reason, stopped working reliably sometime
last year, because it ran without any error output, yet cpan clearly never
received the file.

I'm no friend of qt, but it's definitely perl not supporting qt, not the
other way round :)
