$ 6 'my $a = 0; ($a++,) Zxx 42; say $a’ 0 $ 6 'my $a = 0; ($a++,) Xxx 42; say $a’ 0 Before , this would have yielded 42 in both cases. However, this was a side-effect (pun intended) of thunk xx 42 being eager internally. Since this commit, it is no longer, and this case the inner thunk does not get called when in a sink context. This *could* be a bug, but I’m not sure. Since the commit made 4 spectests that assume the old behaviour fail, it seemed wise to make a ticket before fudging the tests. Please close this bug report if it’s not a bug, and remove/adapt the associated tests.
