recent parrot change breaks a rakudo test

A recent parrot change broke rakudo's t/spec/S11-modules/require.t test file.

It worked for sure in r49387, and fails on r49463.

My bisecting did not produce any reasonable results; even though I clean the parrot installation and do a realclean in both parrot and rakudo at each step, the response seems to be nearly always the same as the previous response, so it shows some kind of hysteresis. Weird.

Apart from that, the bug doesn't seems to be intermittent; repeated execution with the same rakudo+parrot build always gives the same result.

Reduced test case:

$ ./perl6
> class B::Grammar {};
> class B {};
Illegal redeclaration of symbol 'B'

It might have to do with my recent string macro changes. But it's strange that bisecting didn't show which commit caused the problem.

Hmm, I justed tested r49387 and get the same error.

Which commit do you suspect broke this?

I want to help fix this or at least narrow it down, but I get the same behavior with Rakudo builds as early as Sept 11 ( http://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/commit/8669d77a310a4675db8734e33969ac31db5977cd) and their associated Parrot version, and with Rakudo at HEAD and the latest Parrot from trunk.

I think it's a Rakudo problem. The error occurs when using A.pm or B.pm from the test suite. All other tests that use these packages are disabled. Also, the require.t test seems to be pretty new.

Sorry, I can't reproduce positive behaviour here, so it must have been my fault somewhere (maybe local modifications of the test or so).
