It *was* patching the hack -- the hack was having to use Test::Builder
at all.  Without including Test::Builder, the connection somehow didn't
close on a 302 redirect.  Including Test::Builder somehow fixed that (I
have no idea what made us try that in the first place) but clobbered
__DIE__.  r1243 was patching to fix the DIE problem.

__DIE__ seems to show up in the same places now as it did then.
