Ok, this might in fact be a Cygwin problem. Cygwin & Cwd. The following 
produces the error "Usage: Cwd::cwd() at line 6." under Cygwin 
perl 5.8.x, but not under MSWin32 perl 5.6.x & 5.8.x. Also if I change 
Cwd to Carp I get no error. Can anyone test to make sure this does not 
produce errors on any other systems?


package Module;

sub new {
   my $p = shift;

sub cwd {
   require Cwd;


package MyModule;
use Module;
use base 'Module';
use Cwd;

package main;
