SInce I installed the CVS version of 2 days ago on our reader, I have
been seeing this in the daily usenet report:

Incoming articles:

Sites sending bad articles:

This is caused by the line my $val = constant($constname, @_ ? $_[0] : 0);
in the subroutine AUTOLOAD() in

This line looks like
$h =~ s/^\%/\%$CLASS\:\:/ unless $h eq '%prog_type';

As I also upgraded the machine from perl 5.004 to 5.005 at the same
time, this might be caused by some stricter checking in perl.

Any perl experts that have an idea ?
