Moin, when converting Image::Info to Module::Install (in a straightforward way, first create lib/Image/, then do the normal Makefile.PL magic), the warning mentioned in the subject occurs. You can see the bug in Image-Info 1.18 (released shortly to CPAN) Best wishes, Tels

Huh? In which version of Module::Install is this bug fixed? How was it fixed? Is this a problem in my code/data or Module::Install? Whats the reason etc?

Grr... stop that :) 0.58, just uploaded. It was my fault, I think... in any case, fixed. Now go away, and stop re-opening tickets. :) Actually, I explained it, I must just have no flicked the comment to "reply to requestor".
