Hey PerlingTheUK,

Here's a quick fix for you until you get around this problem. It produces correct results for those dotty filenames both under Windows XP (5.6.1 active perl) and Linux (RedHat 9, 5.6.1 as well).
my $f = ". ."; my $result = minuse ($f); print "[$result]\n"; sub minuse { -f $_[0] || &minusd} sub minusd {local *D; opendir (D, shift) && (close (D) || 1)}

    Thank you very much, that works fine. I have installed Build 510 in the meantime and tested -e using that release. All dotty files exist in that build as well, but anyway, this fix is fine for now.

[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
[marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
[marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
LanX needs to see Freddy Mercury'
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I have that on DVD even, and I missed them last year because I was in London at the time ironically ;)
[marto]: put me in the mood to listen to this now :)
[Corion]: LanX: Well, grab a shovel :)
