|Subject:||Can't locate object method "seek" via package "File::Temp"|
We are using MIME::Tools with Sympa mailing list software. The plateform is a RedHat Linux server release 5. After a security upgrade of the pcre (perl regular expressions engine) RPM, we've had fatal errors from Sympa while processing MIME messages. The error message was : "Can't locate object method "seek" via package "File::Temp" at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/MIME/Entity.pm line 1566." After a reinstallation of MIME::Tools, the problem is fixed. MIME::Tools is the only CPAN module (among 30 others) that was broken after the pcre update, though the pcre update was only a security update, not a new release.
