Nothing I know of. Of the above I haven't tried Gimp, I can confirm a
problem in Math::BigInt, all others work fine for me (but HTML::Entities
only tried without Unicode support). I fear you'll have to write
individual bugreports to the authors. Let them know the output of
'perl -V', maybe you encounter platform-specific problems.

I'll write a report to Tels about Math::BigInt.
