Indeed:
$ cat bla.pl
$^W=1;
use strict;
open(IN, '<', '-') || warn("Open '<', '-' did not work: $!");
open(IN, '<-') || die("Cannot open stdin: $!");
print "finished\n";
$ perl bla.pl
Open '<', '-' did not work: No such file or directory at bla.pl line 5.
finished
$

Will be fixed in the next upload.

Best wishes
