Thank you very much!! Now the puzzle is solved and lesson learned. Could you elaborate more about why this is not reliable though?

    If the behaviour change between version of Perl, it is unreliable. In the ENV (of your OS) values will always be stringyfied, older Perl version had permit you to add datastructure to %ENV, but this is not logic as Env will contain only strings. So the behaviour was corrected.
    See also Environment and wikipedia too.
