It is only happening on one of a dozen identical systems.

I'm not a windows user, but I do know from experience that there can be subtle differences in the configuration settings for various apps (e.g. attributes for command-line shell windows) that people tend to ignore or forget about when they compare two windows machines and call them "identical".

Maybe this is just a red herring, but if one machine out of several behaves different, it seems inaccurate to call it "identical" to the rest, and it might be worthwhile looking for the thing that makes it "not identical" (OS-patches/config/app-parameter-settings/etc...), rather than looking at just the perl code that triggers the deviant behavior.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
