Debian broke the perl debugger?

hesco has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Any clues? I recently and belatedly upgraded my desktop from lenny to squeeze, and suddenly the cli debugger works differently. I do not mind the syntax highlighting, but I can no longer see code after I s(tep) into a method call. How can I restore some of the legacy behavior? I tried changing the bg and fg colors in my konsole, but to no avail, I still can not see the code when I s(tep) into a function or method, I've tried v(iew), l(ist), . and -. Makes the debugger rather useless to me.

if( $lal && $lol ) { $life++; }
if( $insurance->rationing() ) { $people->die(); }
