I always though you only have this under Windoze: my machine doesn't seem
to be very different, but I can't reproduce the problem (BTW kernel
2.2.10, not x.12) (note that in order to exclude any influence I had
temporarily moved away my system-installation of BioPerl):

nereis-4: bioperl-live 16:03 143> uname -a
Linux nereis-4 2.2.10 #8 Thu Oct 14 03:08:29 CEST 1999 i686 unknown
nereis-4: bioperl-live 16:04 144> perl -version

This is perl, version 5.005_03 built for i586-linux

[blabla]

nereis-4: bioperl-live 16:04 145> perl t/BPlite.t
1..24
ok 1
ok 2
ok 3
ok 4
ok 5
ok 6
ok 7

ok 15
ok 16
ok 17
ok 18
ok 19
ok 20
ok 21
ok 22
ok 23
ok 24

Does any Perl guru have any clue?
