Message ID:
Resubmitted with modified comments.

Normally on VMS, the equivalent to /tmp is usually private to the logged 
in user, as such is it not usually world writable.

When this test is run with a world writable temp directory, it does not 
pass because the tainting on DCL$PATH is not checked.

This is a TODO issue on VMS.

Personal Opinion Only Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
