Agreed, though I think Sendu only wants bug fixes for 1.5.2.  You  
could always commit to CVS HEAD and it could be in 1.5.3.

Let me rethink that.  There were some subtle tempfile/tempdir issues  
that were popping up on WinXP where the some tempfiles were not being  
deleted b/c of permissions issues; I had planned on adding that to  
Bugzilla today or tomorrow.  Maybe changing to File::Temp would fix  
that, so in essence it would be a bug fix!

I'll go ahead and post the bug.
