What a mess. Okay, I'll yank the 5.10 code in the next release.
Could you please run 'perl -v' for me on your Mac and let me know exactly what version is installed? Early versions of 5.8 had some really ugly bugs that I'd rather not have to think about, IIRC, so I'm tempted to force at least 5.8.8, but I need to know if the MacOSX Perl can be counted on to be at least that high.
