    It works fine in my machine... and in several others...

    Hum... what terminal/OS/terminal-width are you using?

    I'm curious as to what might cause that...

      terminal=>konsole width=>full os=>linux 2.6.9-1.667 fc3 perl =>v5.8.5 yes is curious. but if you like , i can help you for look what happend with this obfuscation code. i will try probe in others operative system , i can on solaris and other linux distributions. or code review.
      Same problem here:
      % uname -srm
      Linux 2.6.10ALiENkeRnel i686
      % echo $TERM
      xterm
      If I set the terminal type to vt220... same problem (using PuTTY).
      Also fails on NetBSD 2.0, with aterm (TERM type of either rxvt or vt220).
      Other caracteristic os:Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike) Linux portal 2.4.20-8smp perl:v5.8.0 term:xterm
