Try to set PERLIO in the environment, e.g.
$ export PERLIO=raw
other possible settings: PERLIO=stdio, PERLIO=perlio, ...
see the perlio manpage for details.

Hmmm, works for me.  Did you install the perl_manpages package?
The manpages are in a separate package since 5.8!

Not the fault of perl (I believe!), it works well as perl was built
and after upgrading cygwin to some later version than 1.3.12 it
doesn't work without this problem.  Do you have a guess how to fix it?

I'm on the way to release an update the next days, would be nice to
get the perldoc display bug fixed for that.
