IF someone (running RedHat and Perl 5.6.0 all latest modules, need binary
compatibility on file) can attach an offending file, I will take a look
at it.

I will need to know whether you are running Storable, as I suspect
you are. If you are not, or are not running the very latest version,
get updated as you *will* get these errors with binary data.

This would be exacerbated with frequent Unicode characters or other
binary data -- and there are a few Unicode bugs in Perl which are being
touched up for 5.6.1, so that can be it too.
