Interesting. However, given the documentation on my system this mistake is not difficult to understand... From perlsub

Overriding may be done only by importing the name from a module--ordin +ary predeclaration isn't good enough. However, the use subs pragma lets yo +u, in effect, predeclare subs via the import syntax, and these names may +then override built-in ones: use subs 'chdir', 'chroot', 'chmod', 'chown'; chdir $somewhere; sub chdir { ... }

But thanks for the clarification.
