in thread output of one program doesn't show in another on server

 qx// `` (backticks) is double-quotish-interpolating, so  \usr\bin\perl is really:

>perl -wMstrict -le "print qq{'\usr\bin\perl'}; " Unrecognized escape \p passed through at -e line 1. 'Sinperl'

(Were you using warn-ings?)

Update: Oops... Fixed example code to include initial backslash. (And always, always avoid Sinperl!)
