Moin,

I see the same failure here, SuSE 8.2, Perl v5.8.1.

It seems Gary Howland only published v1.0 of his module, and then never
updated it. In any event, it is probably outdated (and/or buggy). However,
what do we do with packages that are no longer maintained, the author gone
and bugs in them?

I'll included the email found in test.pl. If this bounces, I will try try to 
mail info@systemics.com and use the key from their website.

Best wishes,

Tels
