This would leave "x86" architecture as the only common thing. My "weird" Perls are running under 32-bit Windows x86 (Intel Celeron 2.8 GHz). You are seeing this under 64-bit Linux (AMD?).

But the HP-UX machine also is a 64-bit x86 machine (Intel Xenon Server CPUs), and it doesn't exhibit the problematic behaviour.
