Oops, just realized that Neil Bowers currently has the pumpkin on this module. Neil, could I prevail upon you to delete line 126: return unless length $text; which is causing this problem (and not really doing anything else that's useful). Thanks, Damian

Yup. I'll merge your changes in with the release that I'd done, and do another release later, to get things back in sync. Neil
