[Melbourne-pm] ActiveState and win32 perl issue

i've been porting an application to see if it would run under windows.

sort of an exercise in inflicting pain on myself. :)

anyway, encountered the following error with ActiveState perl 5.8 when 
using Test::More and DBI. DBD in this case is SQLite, but have had the 
same reaction with MySQL at least, so i don't think it's a DBD issue.

Attempt to free unreferenced scalar: SV 0x1b23e34, Perl interpreter: 
0x15d402c at C:/Perl/lib/Test/Builder.pm line 1329.

the error can be generated a number of ways with this code snippet, 
including changing the number of tests to be the (in this case) correct 
value of 1 (or 2), commenting out the 'FetchHashKeyName' parameter and 
commenting out the fetchrow_hashref loop.

Questions are;

1) Can anyone else replicate the issue on a win32 platform?
2) Any ideas on who to raise the issue with? bit of a bugger with 
platforms that don't come with source code really.
