Description ellson 2002-06-06 12:04:30 EDT
Description of Problem:
The behavior of "perl -v" has changed (in last night's rawhide update)
Before perl-5.8.0-16 it was possible to test the version of
perl with:  perl -v | fgrep 'v5.'
Now, with perl-5.8.0-16 the output of "perl -v" is no longer
accessible via a pipe.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. perl -v | cat   

Actual Results:
produces no output

Expected Results:
same output as "perl -v"

Additional Information:
Multiple gnome2 configure scripts are failing because of this.
Including:  intltool and bonobo-activation
