in thread How does this regex not match?

I am informed by /msg from targetsmart that the example code in Re: How does this regex not match? works in Perl 5.6.1, Windows XP, to demonstrate the operation of quotemeta. I cannot see how, but I cannot test it in 5.6.1 (or even 5.8.x at the moment). It does not work in Strawberry, Windows 7.

The following example code works to demonstrate  quotemeta in Strawberry

>perl -wMstrict -le "my $var = quotemeta 'my_stuff[1]'; print 'match' if 'my_stuff[1]=400' =~ /$var/; " match
