This is a bug report for perl from porton@narod.ru,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.22.2.

[Please describe your issue here]

The value of $obj->{X} in the attached file is undef, it is not a blessed
hash, it is not a tied hash. So the attempt to locate method STORE in

This causes a fatal error message, which should not happen (there should
be even no warning).

$ perl ~/t/perl-bug.pl
Content-Type: text/plain

Perl version: v5.22.2
$VAR1 = undef;
Can't locate object method "STORE" via package "Tier" at /home/porton/t/perl-bug.pl line 47.

    referring to $obj->{X}->{Y} where $obj->{X} isn't a hash. Not a bug.

    $obj->{X}->{Y} modifies $obj->{X} transforming it from undef to a
    hash. So STORE is called.

    This may not be relevant to your use case, but I have, in the past, found Tie::Hash::ReadonlyStack (on CPAN) helpful in avoiding accidental STORE calls on tied hashes.
