I've found that most of the time when cperl-mode is getting confused,
it's not set up properly. It's can help tremendously to have:

    (setq cperl-use-syntax-table-text-property t)
    (setq cperl-syntaxify-by-font-lock t)
    (setq cperl-use-syntax-table-text-property-for-tags t)
    (setq cperl-font-lock t)

Some of this stuff didn't used to be possible in XEmacs, but is now in
21.4 and up due to the porting of syntax-table text properties (extents
in XEmacs) from GNU Emacs.
