I got one more report on this.  Apprently, 5.8.6 busted something;
5.8.5 is reported to be OK.  (I use a lot of fields in XSVMG (sp?) to
keep the internal info for garbage collection, and apparently 5.6.8
overwrites this info even for SVs which are not seen by the Perl
interpreter; sigh).

I do not know when I can have time to analyse this...

Hope this helps,

P.S.  I Cc this to p5-p and PARI development lists.
