I'll accept patches to fix this bug, but it seems to be isolated to a small number of people using an unsupported version of Perl[1] running on a deprecated version of Windows[2]. As such, the effort to reproduce this bug seems to far outweigh the utility of fixing it. [1] http://www.cpan.org/src/ says support for 5.10.1 ended nearly 4 years ago. [2] http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/endofsupport.aspx ... "If your organization has not started the migration to a modern desktop, you are late."
