Apparently the CHANGLEOG lists among the last changes, changing all
instances of Perl_sv_isa() to sv_isa() ... and they missed one.  I
don't know why it took until now to start surfacing.  The Perl_sv_isa()
macro apparently is identical to sv_isa() in non-threaded installations
of Perl, but different under some threaded installations.
