Dowsing for Errors

[ #8400 ]
Dear Log,

Feh, I spent all Tuesday screwing with Pod::Simple just to do one "simple" thing -- making it tolerate this:

=item * Foo

As if it were:

=item *

Foo

I wasn't thinking so clearly as I was poking around the code, so ended up just digging myself in deeper because I had push @$paras when I meant push @$para. It passed strict because I actually had both variables running around. I normally avoid variables that are even close to similarly named, and now am reminded why.
