Well, so much for copy-on-write.

As written:
31
84
109
81

After removing "@":
33
95
177
93

Looks like I'll go back to the old habit of adding otherwise-unnecessary 
"@"s in time-sensitive handlers, being as careful as I used to have to 
be not to modify anything unless that's what I truly want.

Did copy-on-write get changed in v9, or is the scope of its effects just 
more limited than I had understood it to be?
