Message body not shown because it is not plain text.

I can't reproduce your problem on 10.8 with 5.12.4 and I don't have 10.7 to test with.

RETURN_PROBE has something to do with dtrace.  5.12 took three arguments, 5.14 took four.  Data::Alias attempts to rectify this but doesn't seem to succeed.

Does perl -wle 'use Config; $Config{usedtrace}' say "define"?
Yes, " perl -wle 'use Config; print $Config{usedtrace}' " prints "define".
I can reproduce this with the Perl 5.10.1 that comes with OS X 10.8.3 and has dtrace on.  It's definitely a bug that only comes out with dtrace.
This patch fixes the problem.  I've tested it on 5.8.9, OS X 10.8's 5.10 (with dtrace), OS X 10.8's 5.12 (without dtrace) and 5.16.2.

All I did was remove the ENTRY_PROBE and RETURN_PROBE redefinitions.  They were being called as part of POP_SUB.  This was added in 1.13, but it doesn't seem necessary.  Maybe Zefram can remember how to tickle that bug?

The correct fix is for the {ENTRY,RETURN}_PROBE() macros to have different arity depending on Perl version. (The four-arg form came in in Perl 5.13.8.) Will be fixed in the next release. -zefram
dtrace hooks fixed in Data-Alias-1.17, now on CPAN.
