Aah ... and there's also an extraneous '\' before '$self'.

As usual, I don't have a ready (and accurate) answer to your questions :-)

Looks to me that set_status should have been called. Is set_status supposed to print an error message to stdout ? Where is set_status defined ? (Sheesh ... I hate inheritance ... )

Cheers,
