    Apologies on not having responded earlier, I probably missed the
response.

    FWIW, useqq now produces expected results; usage without useqq
continues to produce an empty string.  Tried this with perl 5.8.8 w/
Data::Dumper 2.121_08 on both netbsd 4.0 and debian 4.0 systems.

    If one is to believe that Data::Dumper's intent is to produce a
string that can be eval'd to produce a copy of the original object
like it's manual page indicates, this appears to be a bug.
