David, I don't understand your response.  It doesn't seem to take into
account the problem I reported in my most recent (Feb 28) post, namely,
that I can reproduce the problem on a current (5.16.0) Perl on at least
one operating system (Darwin).  (And I've since reproduced it on a
second Darwin machine, this time Darwin/PPC.)

Moreover, the test file that I used to demonstrate this in my last post,
t/bless.t, is one file to which we made no changes whatsoever in going
from D::D 2.139 to 2.143.  So even if the "tests are overriding
$Data::Dumper::Useperl when they shouldn't", why is this problem only
showing up with 2.143 and not earlier versions?

I'm attaching output from three different ways of testing one test file
from D::D 2.143 on the same (Darwin) machine:  (a) with the latest
installed 'prove'; (b) with installed perl 5.16; (c) with blead as of today.

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan
