Subject: parse hangs

I restarted AFL (<>) on latest blead, but it quickly finds this and hangs: ./miniperl -ce '"@{"' Bisect shows this was introduced by the recent commit e47d32dcd5: [perl #123712] Fix /$a[/ parsing The parser used to read more lines of input when parsing code interpo- lated into quote-like operators, under some circumstance. [...] The simplest fix is to modify the function that reads more input, namely, lex_next_chunk, and prevent it from reading more lines of input from inside a quote-like operator. Hugo
