Good point, I missed that, sorry.
It shouldn't have. The code is so simple it's ridiculous that it doesn't
always work on every version of Perl. Did you have the option switched on
to always include the SA header?
What exact version of Perl are you using? I've tried and tried to reproduce
this fault on any of my systems, but I still can't :-(
