I can reproduce his results with ActivePerl 5.6.1

$1 = 'a' $2 = 'bbbbb' @- = (1, 0, 1) @+ = (7, 1, 6)

    Perl 5.8.8 doesn't have this problem. Whatever it is, it appears to have been fixed. 5.6.1 is kind of "old".

      It appears to have been fixed in 5.8.0.
      $1 = '' (defined) $2 = 'bbbbb' @- = (1, 1, 1) @+ = (7, 1, 6)
