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.

    Hmmm, I'm getting this problem on a debian install perl. not activeperl. i'm using it to select only directories and i tried Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::ChooseDirectory and came up against hell with it too until i realized that everything else in the app is tk. tia

[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
