It is certainly a good catch, and you deserve kudos for finding it.

Well, a bug report is probably pointless. Old versions certainly remain in use, however, as in my latest gig one of their AIX boxes was still using 5.0.

As an aside, were the three Perl versions (5.6.[012]) running in the same environment and built with the same compiler?

    .1 and .2 were on the same Centos 4 system, built with gcc 3. I've not yet built a local copy of .0, that was checked against the system perl on a SunOS box. I'll try to look into that soonish, and hope it's not bitten by the same compilation issues as 5.6.1 under gcc 3; one must munge the makefile's to remove <built-in> and <command line>, etc.

    My original guess was something to do with locales, until I noticed that all of the CPANTS failures were 5.6.2 boxen.
