Perltidy is from my experience a beautiful but difficult beast. *

The product is mostly awesome but details are very hard to predict and tune.

If I were you I'd take a look into the test suite and file a bug report if your case is misinterpreted.

There is a Tk gui on CPAN to interactively try out options, but it was pretty hard to install.

In the end I'm personally just relying on Emacs indentation and formatting of my code, while using perltidy to decipher foreign products.
