5.8.0 -> 5.8.1 breakage on Debian: HTML::Parser failure
Message ID:
I understand that 5.8.1 is supposed to be binary compatible with
5.8.0.  However, the Debian build of 5.8.1, is not compatible with the
Debian HTML::Parser binary package.  Rebuilding HTML::Parser (without
any source changes) fixed the failure.

Has anyone else experienced an upgrade difficulty of this kind?  Is
it, in the collective opinion of this august list, Debian-specific?
