Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.
<rant>I can't tell you how many times I've worked on applications where I try to run Perl's debugger and the debugger just freezes. I've never used a debugger in any other language which is so fragile</rant> :(
I've wondered if it's just taking longer, but no, it's really hanging. And this is a huge system and figuring out what part it's hanging on is a chore in and of itself.
No, it doesn't stop when I hit CTRL-C. I have to do a ps to get the process id and then kill it.
What's worse is that I'm the only person who has ever noticed...
