It's a special case and I don't think it is a problem in practice. It only happens when there is a block longer than $subStrSize (the minimum match quanta) with a repeated pattern. Test strings and results are shown below:
000:001 L[ 11] ( 0 29)
000:002 L[ 11] ( 0 28)
001:002 L[ 10] ( 0 0)
Completed in 0.002126
Best match: >string1 - >string2. 11 characters starting at 0 and 29.
Best match: >string1 - >string3. 11 characters starting at 0 and 28.
Perl is Huffman encoded by design.
