Changed, but I'm not sure how it would become empty randomly. As far as 5.8.8 is concerned, I have no control over that part. I would update it if I could. I will also note that if I comment out the see line, it doesn't throw an error, but I can't select anything and if I sort, the list clears. Which I found a similiar problem and solution on perlmonks for, but it did not work for me.
