I've hit this before, and I considered it a Perl bug under Win32. The use 
argument is added to %INC just as it is (case the same), and the .pm file is 
loaded because the Win32 file call doesn't care about case, but when %INC is 
checked later, the comparison is case sensitive and fails. Your mistake 
wouldn't have loaded under Unix/Linux.
