mysterious "try" process dumping core on 7.2-RELEASE ... worried ...

I see these two entries in my /var/log/messages:

Nov 24 18:08:41 hostname kernel: pid 25901 (try), uid 0: exited on signal 10 (core dumped)
Nov 24 18:10:29 hostname kernel: pid 35359 (try), uid 0: exited on signal 10 (core dumped)

But I've never heard of a "try" binary, and 'which try' shows nothing ...

When I search through my system, the only thing remotely resembling "try" is:


I do see that my perl binary is dated:

0 lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  24 Nov 24 18:12 /usr/bin/perl

a few minutes after those error messages, so perhaps that is it ... 

Anyway, what is "try.t", what is a ".t file" and if a "try.t" file core dumped, would I indeed see simply "try" in my logs, as above ?
