in reply to "map" sometimes uses only the last mapped value

I get different results depending on whether or not $f is quoted in the for list:

sub f2a { my ($f) = @_; for my $d ("$f") {return $d} } sub f2b { my ($f) = @_; for my $d ($f) {return $d} } print map {f2a($_)} qw(x y z); # zzz print map {f2b($_)} qw(x y z); # xyz

I also ran it through B::Deparse, but gained no insight.
