in thread Getting Fed Up with ActiveState

That same change to file-path also causes breakage in the rmtree of files across SMB/CIFS shares. Previous to this patch, there was no issue. Not to mention that the patch applied doesn't exclude Windows from it as a platform.

I tried the following experiment:

  1. Add a variable: my $Is_Windows = $^O eq 'MSWin32';
  2. Wrap the two race/exploit checks in if (!$Is_Windows).

The AS patch was sloppy at best, careless at worst. Windows doesn't use GNU Fileutils, as far as I know.
