SPUG: Tied Hashes: Works with Nested Hashes?

For the first time, I'm trying to "tie" a non-trivial hash (one with
values that are references to other "nested" hashes), and having trouble.
With the "dbmopen() or die" and "dbmclose()" calls commented-out,
I can load, manipulate, and print-out my hash structure just fine;
when I remove the comment symbols, all I seem to be left with in my
complex data structure is the keys for the uppermost hash! The *.dir,
*.pag files DO get created, and loaded with stuff.
I don't see any statement anywhere that you can only tie simple hashes,
but now I'm wondering if that's the limitation.
What's the scoop?
