So if I read it correct then I must upgrade my perl version from RedHat 9.0
To the last stable. ??? Installing the perl filter that comes with INN and 
The INNreport also shall work fine with it.

That probably just means you don't have a Perl filter installed.

Let me guess -- Red Hat with Perl 5.6.0?  This problem is normally caused
by a a bug in that version of Perl.  You need to upgrade to a newer
version; there really isn't a good way to work around it that I know.
