Thanks for this one. It's been three years since your posts, but the bug hasn't been fixed. I just came up against it on a Win7 system with ActivePerl 5.10.0.
GetOpenFile works fine for me, so I'll just use that. Here's the documentation on getOpenFile. It comes with Tk, no install needed.

[LanX]: hm just read an article on claiming that RPerl is 250 times faster. ... it's that even possible?
[marto]: under certain circumstances perhaps
[RonW]: as I understand it, RPerl "compiles" a subset of Perl to C, so I would expect the final executable to run a lot faster
[RonW]: Is there an English language version of the site?
[LanX]: but Afaik Perl is on average about 10-20 times slower than C
[LanX]: no
