I don't know how you're parsing your conf file, but I'd check to make sure that $Path->{'real'} doesn't include a trailing newline.

As a practice, when I'm printing out variables when debuging, I'll print delimiters around the variable to make this easy to see. For example, in this case something like print "|", $Path->{'real'}, "|\n";. If the second | ends up a line by itself, the problem is clear. (And chomp is your friend).

That may not be what the problem is in your case, but it's worth checking.

    Bingo! (Almost) It turned out to be a preceding space. Thanks for putting the bug in my head!
