There's a bug in perl 5.8.0-5.8.2 whereby -- depending on how your perl
is compiled -- the value of $^E (see the Mac::Glue docs for details)
is modified when accessed. This patch helps minimize the effect, so
at least the value is reliable right after a Mac::Glue event call.
This change makes the value of $^E more reliable even without the bug
The problem still exists in using Mac::Errors and probably other code.
It will be fixed in perl 5.8.3 and later. Here's a patch to your perl
if you want to fix it locally:
