I recently ran the installer and it updated vim to 8.2

VIM - Vi IMproved 8.2 (2019 Dec 12, compiled Feb 13 2022 22:00:24)
Included patches: 1-4372

Now when I open a perl script, I get the following message:

Command terminated
Error detected while processing BufRead Autocommands for "*.pl"..function dist#ft#FTpl[10]..FileType
Autocommands for "*"..function <SNR>11_LoadFTPlugin[18]..script /usr/share/vim/vim82/ftplugin/perl.
vim[57]..BufRead Autocommands for "*.pl"..function dist#ft#FTpl[10]..FileType Autocommands for "*"..
function <SNR>11_LoadFTPlugin[18]..script /usr/share/vim/vim82/ftplugin/perl.vim:
line   50:
E484: Can't open file /tmp/vveXImd/0
Press ENTER or type command to continue

And all syntax is lost.

This only happens with perl-scripts.

I opened Verilog/SystemVerilog/Shell/CPP/C/TCL files, and all these opened without problems.

Not sure if I should ask this in the vim/github help, thought I will start here.
