There is probably a better solution, and I suspect it has something to do with the seek.

Indeed. This is how I've fixed it:

$. = 0; seek $fh, 0, 0 or die "Can't rewind handle to $file: $!\n";

(Updated: Actually, you also have to move that code so that it gets run before 'print' (for example) gets called, which is required else $. would be tied to STDOUT.)

Alternately, you can do:

{ my $eof = <$fh>; $. = 0; } seek...

Or I could just open the file twice.
