This ticket has not been responded to in the nearly five years since it
was filed.  I suspect that that is for two reasons.  First, it involves
an interaction between the debugger -- which Perl 5 Porters is
responsible for -- and XML::Simple -- which, since it's not in the Perl
core distribution, we're not responsible for.  Second, further diagnosis
of the problem would require downloading the original poster's program.

Original poster:  If you are still experiencing the problem, can you
provide a more compact example?

List:  Do we have a standard procedure for handling tickets like this?

Thank you very much.
