You probably need AllowGlobal in your interchange.cfg file.

If one is writing embedded perl one should learn how to grep through 
the code to find something like that and how to systematically
isolate the issue.

grep MVSAFE *.pm

Yeah it would be nice if IC logs were more syslog typical, 
__FILE__:__LINE__ message.  We've never run it with the syslog
option (there is one isn't there), maybe it already is.
