Haven't specifically tried that script under ActiveState but did (early
on) have problems with ActiveState and other scripts (commit-allower.pl)
if memory is correct and others. Switching to Cygwin's perl build
corrected the problem. I also believe that at least one script now has
a change to make it work well under ActiveState. Sorry can't be more
specific at the moment.
