According to setup.exe, I have cygwin 1.5.5-1 and perl 5.8.0-5 installed. My version of ActiveState Perl is 5.8.0 build 806 (just downloaded today to test this anomaly out). FWIW, I'm running everything on an NT4 SP6 machine.

perl -w works fine for ActivePerl - no warnings. Plus, my script uses the "warnings" and "strict" pragmas.
