A guess: this function is implemented in C and has a bug (e.g:
null pointer dereference), causing the kernel to send SEGV to
the process. The perl debugger catches this signal and notifies

If this is the case, I would expect a normal run to be aborted
(the default behavior of SEGV) with a core dump.
