Could we install that patch on Fedora? Not sure what Perl is in F7, but don't

I can apply the patch, but can you point me towards a way to reproduce the issue?
I came across this issue in the process of troubleshooting a bug in E-P-I-C,

I think that the fix I request will alleviate some (but not all) causes of that bug.
