Hm, this is a strange one. While the accented variable name is important, the 'my' declaration is also important.
eval qq/my \$v\xE9/;
eval q/print $string; $string = "new value"/;
print $@ if $@;
Results in the error:
"my" variable $string masks earlier declaration in same scope at (eval 2) line 1.
Somehow $string is being declared lexical in the second eval. The specific error being triggered in the first eval (Unrecognized character \xE9) has a special case in toke.c, and I can only think this early exit is leaving the tokenizer in an odd state.
