    In the meantime you could use my $md5 = md5_hex("$string"); to work around the problem.
      you could use my $md5 = md5_hex("$string");

    "Patches speak louder than words", as the saying goes...

    I have looked into the thing and made up a tentative patch:

    that seems to fix it. There are still problems with two failing tests. One of the fails can be fixed in a straightforward manner, the other one I haven't followed up yet.

    If you want the fix quickly you're invited to pick it up for submission at p5p. You can mail me through my berlin.pm address for more details if you want to. Otherwise I'll come back to it later, which may be much later.
