I just noticed that dvdrip does not work when PERL_VERSION=5.12.4.

Ths symptom is a hang as soon as the user tries to create a new project.
Here's the ps output:
150 5360 4704     1  40  0 236740  47116 umtxn    I     2    0:00.88
/usr/local/bin/perl /usr/local/bin/dvdrip

Note the umtxn.

Forcing PERL_VERSION=5.8.9 and reinstalling dvdrip results in a working
copy and creating a new project returns basically immediately and everything
else also works.

Just thought I'd report it for the archive.
