In perl 5.17.1 and higher, if a /(?{})/ construct is compiled while Devel::Declare is loaded, DD's block hook gets invoked with PL_linestr being the contents of the regexp as it is being parsed, and when it reallocates the SV buffer to accommodate DD insertions this invalidates pointers that the regexp compiler has into the buffer. Results in memory corruption; various failure modes I've seen include getting garbage in the regexp and attempting to allocate more memory than is possible. Workaround is to limit the PL_linestr reallocation to normal code parsing. Unfortunate side effect is that DDed syntax can't be used inside /(?{})/, but that's not an appalling imposition. Patch attached. -zefram
