Thanks for the debugger pointer. Using it, I discovered that the problem lies on line 208 of cwd.t.
# this is the line I removed # ($file) = grep {-f $_ and not -l $_} map File::Spec->catfile($roo +t, $_), readdir FH; # and replaced with this foreach my $x (readdir(FH)) { my $y = File::Spec->catfile($root, $x); if (-f $y && ! -l $y) { $file = $y; last; } }
It appears there was somthing in my root directory that wasn't to the code's liking, so I just took the first successful hit of the file test operators and bailed out of the loop. I'm fairly certain I didn't compromise the accuracy of the test, but please let me know if you see a problem with what I did.

It's all fine and dandy until someone has to look at the code.
