Digging deeper has revealed the the code is core dumping and examination of
the core shows that is occuring during memory opperations
Here's a snippet :-

core 'perl.80615' of 80615:     perl t/browseentry-subclassing.t
 ff0d4d98 t_delete (4dec80, 0, 540e10, 0, ff168298, 0) + 74
 ff0d440c _malloc_unlocked (68, 0, 4dec80, ff16cbc0, 0, ff342000) + 18c
 ff0d4264 malloc   (68, 1, 94078, ff13302c, ff168298, ff1709b8) + 4c
 fee273fc _XEnq    (407360, ffbff28c, 20, 0, 0, 20) + 24
 fee1e288 _XReply  (407360, ffbff28c, 0, 1, 4, 10) + 468

I'm going to rebuild perl and use a different option when asked about which
malloc to use - see if that helps

Thanks for your help
