smitz has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Darndest thing ever, fellow monks. I was playing with the perl -d test.pl debugger, and it failed with an odd looking error about connecting to localhost. Of course, I assumed it was my test.pl script, but it aint. Join me below the readmore tag for hot code action.
C:\perl -v This is perl, v5.8.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread C:\>more test.pl #!perl use strict; my $var = 'Beard\n'; print $var; C:\>perl -d test.pl Unable to connect to remote host: 127.0.0.1:2000 Compilation failed in require. main::BEGIN() called at C:/Perl/lib/perl5db.pl line 0 eval {...} called at C:/Perl/lib/perl5db.pl line 0 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
Thanks for any input, I really dont even know where to begin (ha!) on this one. Of course the test.pl is irrelevant, but why on earth is the debugger attempting a connection?
