Re: exim and pipe aliases?

The problem is the script is actually failing.  It generates this error:

Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at                                                     
        /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.0/LWP/Protocol.pm line 114 (#1)                                        
    (W uninitialized) An undefined value was used as if it were already                                  
    defined.  It was interpreted as a "" or a 0, but maybe it was a mistake.                             
    To suppress this warning assign a defined value to your variables.                                   
    To help you figure out what was undefined, perl tells you what operation                             
    you used the undefined value in.  Note, however, that perl optimizes your                            
    program and the operation displayed in the warning may not necessarily                               
    appear literally in your program.  For example, "that $foo" is                                       
    usually optimized into "that " . $foo, and the warning will refer to                                 
    the concatenation (.) operator, even though there is no . in your                                    
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at                                             
        /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.0/LWP/Protocol.pm line 87 (#1)                                         

When it is run manually it works great.  When executed by exim with a
pipe I get this error message every time, setting "return_fail_output"
didn't help either.
