Thanks so much for finding this. I do indeed have a "while, do and
foreach" so I guess I hit this bug. I've found it in the Perl
bugtracker and it is fixed. I guess the fix hasn't made it into Debian yet.
The script runs fine and I used Data::Dumper extensively to check values
and when debugging and everything is as it is supposed to be.
