bug in threads::shared or is it just me?by dada (Chaplain)

dada has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I observe this strange behaviour with threads::shared (version 1.32, on Ubuntu's Perl 5.12.4 x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi):
outside of the sub I get the hash keys, but not the values. like they went out of scope, or something. the output is:
this happens only if I declare the shared hash in a sub and return its content. if I move the hash declaration outside of the sub, everything works:
also if I return a reference to the shared hash, everything works:
the same exact thing happens with arrays too.
is this a bug, or the intended behaviour? and if so, why?
