In other words, as best as I can determine, this smoker client represents a Perl 5.10 installation with unupgraded beta modules installed. I suggested to Allison that we ignore the report, as it's a weird configuration that only people who know what they're doing would ever encounter. I expect those people to be able to diagnose and fix these problems on their own.
