the current perl-POE package is really outdated on EL6 (v. 1.289-3.el6), would it be possible to upgrade it to the latest available upstream release?
I'll do the update.
perl-POE-1.354-1.el6 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 6.
perl-POE-1.354-1.el6 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
