Isn't the name of all the checkboxes "tagbucket"?

This should give you an array containing all the values of the *checked*
checkboxes (e.g. $cb_name_X, $cb_name_Y, $cb_name_Z, ....)

check the HTML.  are the names and values being properly generated for
the 'tagbucket' checkboxes on your form.

you could also add

  use Data::Dumper;


  print Dumper(@boxes)

to help troubleshoot.
