This is something you'll need to ask on a perl *5* forum. (This is 
the parrot/perl 6 dev list -- we don't have the answers you're 
looking for) If you've got more details, then file a bug with the 
perlbug utility that comes with perl and talk to the perl5-porters. 
If not, you might try or the comp.lang.perl.misc
