IIRC that flag is new in 1.5, so that's not surprising. :)

Anyway it looks like you found the cause of the bug, and I suspect it's
not even specific to the Perl bindings. This smells of out-of-order pool
destruction because of late module loading; a very familiar topic from
my "BDB registry" days.

Thanks for the follow-up; and I think this could be a showstopper for 1.5.
