UPDATE: Problem solved with YAML-0.39

Hi, up to now, I often used YAML to make data dumps, because it gave a nicely indented printout. But I just ran into a situation where YAML drops data on it's printout, but Data::Dumper dosn't. What I am doing is converting a 1 meg xml file to a user-friendly-hash and dumping the hash.

Here is a damaged portion of the YAML dump, the keys begin with SH, followed by a sub hash. I've commented where the YAML dump fails, it truncates the previous key's "stop" and "writer" subhash, and the next key is truncated to ':'. Data::Dumper will not make this error.

Has anyone seen this sort of thing before?
