Hmmm...  This didn't work for me.  According to the documentation for 
Params::Validate (which DateTime uses), it does a Carp::confess (which 
is a equivalent to 'die'.  Maybe you have a different version of one or 
more of the modules which gives a warning rather than 'die'ing?  I'm not 
sure.  Thanks for the reply.
