The only idea i have to figure out this is: repeat the Perl setup and use something like RegMon to watch what's going on. And IMHO that means to start from scratch, right? I wonder if it's worth the effort.
You might get away with just deleting the registry key and then re-installing the AS perl over the top of the existing installation. Or you might try running REGMON whilst you do an un-install of the existing installation -- if it created it, it should remove it when un-installed; but there is no guarantee that the installer/de-installer is so diligent.
And it is also possible that the reg key came into being because the user used did something in the Explorer that caused it to form the association.
As for whether it is worth your time, only you can decide, but if you do find out, please be sure to report it back here :)
