Subject: memory-eating fail on 5.25.{6..8}

On Perl 5.25.{6..8}, but no other released Perl versions, recent Encode versions enter a memory-eating loop in their test suite. Everything appears fine until the t/truncated_utf8.t test script, which hangs, consuming an ever-increasing amount of memory. Encode-2.94 did not exhibit this problem, and passed tests on these Perl versions. This problem is an impediment to testing on old Perl versions, even more so than just failing on these Perl versions would be. -zefram
