I already did, but thanks a lot anyway for your offer!

Yes, the test #14 (concerning method "tie" of the module) fails with
ActivePerl Has to do with duping filehandles. Dunno why yet.

But the "examples" test scripts work, and since they're quite tough,
the module should still be ok except for that extra tying part.
