Strange, I only see this warning in Win32 AS Perl 5.6; it's not present under Linux 5.6.1/5.00503 or even Cygwin 5.6. With your variation, the warning comes out afterwards, so it looks as if the first line is the problem:
About to import Imported main::mysub() called too early to check prototype at C:\Projects\GPerl +\Test\ line 1. mysub: 1
               s aamecha.s a..a\u$&owag.print

    On the contrary, the warning does occur under perl 5.6.1 on Linux, as well as perl 5.6.0 and perl 5.7.1. Are you sure you had warnings turned on for all your tests?

    The warning doesn't occur in 5.005_03 because the warning wasn't implemented until 5.6.0. :)

    Anyway, this warning is actually produced at the end of the compile phase, after the entire script has been compiled:

    warn "About to call\n"; mysub(1); warn "Called\n"; BEGIN { package Foo; require Exporter; @ISA = qw(Exporter); @EXPORT = qw(mysub); sub mysub ($) { warn "mysub: @_\n" }; } BEGIN { warn("About to import\n"); Foo->import(); warn("Imported\n"); } CHECK { warn "Done compiling.\n" } INIT { warn "Running.\n" } __END__ About to import Imported main::mysub() called too early to check prototype at line 4. Done compiling. Running. About to call mysub: 1 Called
      Agh! Indeed I forgot to enable warnings. That was pretty damn stupid of me.

    Then it is a run-time check.

    BTW the fact that ActiveState's Perl does not correspond to things built from source bothers me...
