fairly simple. our is reserved, but not used, in 5.005_03. from perldelta for 5.005_03:
our is now a reserved word
Calling a subroutine with the name our will now provoke a warning when using the -w switch.
Found this info via perldoc.com.
I don't know the reason your script used our so my suggestion for fixing it (change it to a use vars statement) may not be appropriate.
Update: In addition to wog's note below, I've also realized that I missed how the statement was used in the example code. Why are you declaring 'our' inside a subroutine? I don't know what the style trend is in the general community, but if I'm defining a package variable (which 'our' does) then I wouldn't do it from within a subroutine.
If the variable is used solely within the sub, use my. Otherwise, use vars and I would recommend taking the declaration out of the subroutine (personal preference).
