I suspect you might want to confirm that the "fails on ActivePerl 5.8.7"
isn't equivalent to "fails on ActivePerl 5.8.7 installed via CamelPack"
since those two are not logically equivalent.
Although CamelPack tries real hard to be 100% compatible with ActivePerl
(built with M$loth's own compiler), gcc under Windows is *not* the same
as VC++. It is very possible that some subtle Win32 failure mode is
being triggered that wouldn't happen when using VC++. Based on the
CamelPack page, a candidate with sufficient tuits could build a
CamelPack with 5.8.8 for comparison purposes.
