in thread What Just Happened to my CPAN Shell?

Yes, my perl is 5.8.8:
$ perl -v This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi [...snip...]
The test script segfaults as per your example. However:
$ perl -MSafe -e 'print $Safe::VERSION, "\n"' 2.14
I now have two's:

2.14 is in /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8/
2.15 is in /usr/lib/perl/5.8.8/

@INC is:
$ perl -MData::Dumper -e 'print Dumper(\@INC);' $VAR1 = [ '/etc/perl', '/usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8', '/usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8', '/usr/lib/perl5', '/usr/share/perl5', '/usr/lib/perl/5.8', '/usr/share/perl/5.8', '/usr/local/lib/site_perl', '.' ];
I'm not sure why there is a discrepancy (no difference in Makefile.PL between the two versions), although I installed 2.14 via the CPAN shell, and 2.15 via bash.

When I upgrade the test script to 'use lib qw(/usr/lib/perl)' before 'use Safe', it does not segfault and emits:
$ perl 3.0.17
