More info, for interested Perl users:  I run CentOS 5 on the server with
the dirvish wiki on it, and an automated security update of perl 
( perl-5.8.8-10.el5_0.2.i386.rpm ) overwrote the 84841 byte file:

/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/List/Util/Util.so

... with a 36168 byte truncated version.  The CPAN force install of
Scalar::Util put the file back.  Now I should tell the CentOS people
and the RedHat people that their security-related rpm update can cause
breakage.  Thanks to Eric Wilhelm of the Portland Perl Mongers for
telling me where to look!
