Found it! The common module was loading yet another common module that included "use lib ..." that was putting the installed area back in front of blib/lib. I'm beginning to think use lib is evil and PERL5LIB is a much better approach througout.

    No, lib is not evil, lib simply doesn't belong in modules, it belongs in scripts

      Here is patch for lib.pm, add to sub import

      if( ( caller )[1] =~ /\.pm$/ ){ require Carp; Carp::croak( "use lib ... is for scripts not modules!"); }
