The current implementation does not handle pushed back input correctly
unless the pushed back input ends with the value of $/.

Currently, this does not affect many modules, because only a few (in
fact, only fasta.pm?) change $/, and only complete records/lines returned
by _readline() are pushed back (hopefully!). Still, it is a silent and
potentially harmful bug.
