The bug looks very weird - where comes the dirty Cwd 2.08 stuff from?
I'm not sure the line fixes the root cause, it seems to work on symptom...

However - 10 years later searching and fixing the root-cause might not
be reasonable at all.

Let's try to figure out how to fix the symptom fix to avoid breakage
of third party environments:

Merijn proposed using /\bblib\b/ instead of /blib/ - looking at rt#4681
I would suggest using /^\bblib\b/

That should be restrictive enough to avoid disturbing anything else than
dirty blib/inc ...

Thanks for investigating, Tony.
