      I'm pretty sure now that it's related to my IDE. PFE warns in the docs about this -- it won't necessarily print certain things at certain times, and Perl doesn't always print certain things at certain times, and between the two I think it wasn't printing squat. Running it straight from the prompt displayed exactly what I expected.

      There had been some weirdness like this before, but it was always rare -- most of the time, Perl prints like you'd expect, and most of the time PFE prints like you'd expect, and about 10% of the time they each do something wonky to make other things work internally. That 10% of the time, if only PFE or Perl is modifying things, it still works fine. It's only when PFE is in weird-land and Perl is also in weird-land that these things crop up. I should have known better, though.

      I was almost convinced that my computer was possessed, because this seemed so basic...
