does anyone have any kinds of trouble when running MailScanner with Perl 5.14 ?

I'm using vanilla MailScanner 4.84.3 (from tar distribution) on a
Debian testing server and I recently upgraded Perl from 5.12 to 5.14.
Mail processing keeps running normally, but utilizing
start-stop-daemon for starting/stoping and for the hourly check job is
troublesome because it cannot stop the already running childer, it
keeps starting additional ones.

There is already a Debian bug report as well:
