Bug#2093: perl dumps core on libwww-perl-5b5

Package: perl
Version: 5.002-3

Perl dumps core when run on the VERSION file included with
libwww-perl-5b5 (Avaiable via the CPAN archive).  A copy of the
VERSION file is included.



=head1 VERSION

This is a self-modifying file. Whenever a version number in one of the
members increases, this program increases its own version number by
0.01. Can also increment alfa/beta version numbers.  Members are
enumerated below the __END__ token.

This implies that we get a new timestamp. If we make Makefile
dependent on this program, we get a new Makefile everytime one of the
versions changes. It is really not the cheapest solution, but maybe
the most trivial one.

Add a new module by writing its name on a line after the __END__ token.

Change the overall version number arbitrarily by changing it within
this file.
