Bug Description

Binary package hint: perl

I expect these two programs to give the same output.

$ cat test.pl
sub foo($);
sub foo($) {
    my $i = shift;
    format STDOUT =
@>>>
$i
.
    write;
}
foo(1);
foo(2);

$ perl test.pl
   1
   1

$ cat test2.pl
sub foo($) {
    my $i = shift;
    format STDOUT =
@>>>
$i
.
    write;
}
foo(1);
foo(2);

$ perl test2.pl
   1
   2

$ perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi
