This appears to be a bug in the Perl included with RH5.2. Adrian
Trapletti (and Fritz Leisch) reports:
I had exactly the same problem, also under RH5.2. I upgraded to
perl version 5.005_03 and now it works.
Perl 5.005_02 works for me on Solaris, too.
[I am just filing Adrian's report on R-bugs for the record.]
