I still use perl-5.003.07-10 and browsing a *.deb works just okay
here.  Lindsay, which perl do you have installed?  Could you please
try downgrading it if it is perl-5.004-2 just for finding out if it
works this way?  Anyway, the lib/mc/extfs/deb perl script probably
needs an overhaul anyway if it doesn't work with perl-5.004-2.  I hope
the current maintainer Fernando Alegre finds the time to do it!? (I
don't speak perl.)
