Quadruple checked.

And furthermore, it seems to only fail on my 5.8.0 perl installation at
work, but not my perl 5.8.4 here. Damn.

Looks like I am going to have to do an ugly workaround until I can get the
sysadmins to upgrade perl (not likely, since we use a stupid distribution
that doesn't have the concept of upgrades without reinstalling everything)

How do you temporarily turns warnings off around a block of code?

You must realize that the computer has it in for you.  The irrefutable
proof of this is that the computer always does what you tell it to do.
