If this were a Postgres problem I'd agree with you. But it isn't, really 
- it's a Perl problem, which is properly documented in the Perl docs, to 
which this note refers.

I don't think we'll get flooded with problems - Greg is the first person 
who has complained about it in the 9 months or so since version 8.0 was 
released.
