I get the segfault with perl 5.6.1 on solaris. But strangely, if I change the line:
my $dumped = Dumper(\%rev,\%name);
It works fine. I can't see why that should make any difference.

Update: Tested on Win32, with ActiveState's D::D 2.121 PPM. Same behaviour - using Dumper() in scalar context avoids segfault.
