I thought this patch fixed the bug (scripts not running because shebang lines can't have that many arguments) by replacing the "-w" command-line switch with a "^W" within the script, which has the same effect as the "-w" switch but actually works.

And then I thought there was a comment which said that use of "-w" or "^W" was not the best way to achieve the desired effect. But this second thing is an independent improvement, whereas the patch that got applied already was a "correct" bug fix (in that it fixes the bug and makes nothing any worse than it was).

(But I am unfamiliar with perl and may have misunderstood.)
