So this got fixed in Encode 3.13, and 3.15 (3.14 segfaulted :P).
Perl v5.36 will have 3.15 (or possibly a newer version).  This
has been a leak since 2016 (2.87), so there might be lot of
people affected...

CentOS 7.x has Encode 2.51 so it's probably not affected by
this particular bug...

It's tracked for Debian, at least https://bugs.debian.org/995804

Our "eval { $eml->body_str }" usage is kinda dumb, so maybe it
could be done better w/o needing eval at all...
