This is strange indeed.  Perl usually handles errors internally and
I never got a segmentation fault.  However, if you are using the GUI,
Perl has to use system libraries.  As a first step, can you run the

  uname -a
  perl --version

and send the results to the list?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
