Looking in the POD for Tk::Image it says:

CAVEATS It's necessary to use the "delete" method to delete an image object and free memory associated with it. Just using a lexical variable for storing the image object and letting the variable to go out of scope or setting to undef is not sufficient.

That said, I tried adding

$ZC->centerTags($dwg); $img->delete; undef $img;

And it made no difference.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?
