This is a bug report for perl from bplatz@acm.org,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.34 running under perl v5.8.0.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]


The following simple program reports warnings under Perl 5.8.0,
but not previous releases:

aldrsh(dcssrv88.agere.com/megpsrv): cat z.pl
#!/opt/perl58/bin/perl -w

use POSIX;
use Cwd;

aldrsh(dcssrv88.agere.com/megpsrv): z.pl
Subroutine main::getcwd redefined at /opt/perl58/lib/5.8.0/Exporter.pm line 59.
 at z.pl line 4


Why?

I should be able to fully qualify on which version of getcwd that I want,
even if there were two versions defined. Isn't this the point of
qualifying methods by package or class name? I do not want to
remove the -w option, because I want to see other warning messages.

Previous versions of Perl did not report the above warning.

Thank you in advance,
Dave Schulte
