Somewhere along the line my frozen-bubble stopped working.
I looked around for a frozen-bubble mailing list, but I do not
see anything... hoping it is a FreeBSD thing and/or someone
here will have their perl-fu more sharply honed than I do.

Anyhow, when I try to start it I get this :

[SDL Init] Not a HASH reference at /usr/local/bin/frozen-bubble.pl line 322.

I created a patch which actually allows the game to start and run,
but it is unplayable since the screen is not updated until one of
the balls travels over it ...

Anyone understand this $foo->{-surface} thing enough to help me
fix this? If not I will go look for a perl-sdl list...

Thanks for your time.
