[Dub-pm] DBM behaviour

I've got a question about DBM behaviour on Debian Stable (pinned to testing)

perl, v5.8.4 built for i386-linux-thread-multi

I'm using (read borrowing, with permission ;>) a script that expects DMB
files with a .db extensions when reading in existing files, however when I
create files, I get two files - with .dir and .pag extensions

Is there any way to modify this behaviour?  Or do I need to go modifying
the script to take into account the new behaviour?
