While loop does not terminateby nysus (Parson)

nysus has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Disregard. This was a problem in the return value from get_value(), not the while loop test. Sorry to bother everyone.
Got this simple while loop:
The $status is set to the value returned by the get_value() function. When the value returned is no longer 'initializing', I want the loop to terminate. However, the while loop never terminates. It keeps going even when get_value() returns 'ok' and I'm not sure why. I've tried a few different iterations of this code to no avail.
This simplified version code works as expected:
But when I try to duplicated this in my real world code, it doesn't work.
