It shouldn't be necessary to fear commands that come as part of a standard distribution. It's wonderful that people come up with CPAN modules that do good things, but not-so-wonderful that standard utilities misbehave. Bug reports are always likely to get more satisfactory action if fixes are included (perl-porters time is not unlimited). If you aren't up to fixing the underlying problem, then propose a fix to the misleading documentation. That's where I'm headed with this "problem", if it turns out to be a real problem (and it does appear to be).
