Perl looks for 'strict' and 'Strict' as different modules,
but they install themselves into the same namespace - hence
the problem.

You need to complain to your vendor... "use Strict" is
totally wrong, since pragmas should be all lower case. 
Your vendor's coders haven't been reading the documentation
that well :P

There isn't anything you can do except fix their mistakes.
