I know nothing about either manifest files or
Vista (like Don, I hope I die before I /have/
to use Vista), but the following page concerning
problems with external manifest files and
Microsoft O/Ss earlier than Vista recommends 
specifically :

> Note: make sure you use <trustInfo xmlns="urn:
> schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v2">  instead of .v3

from http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/windowssecurity/thread/6d870287-e364-4151-851d-70605c0e6a6d/

whilst the manifest file for Perl.exe uses .v3

There is no evidence to suggest that this will help
in the present case, but it would be interesting if
the author of the manifest file could comment on
its contents, and perhaps advise on the exact function
of each element.

Incidentally, I have just corrected the line-endings
in the manifest file for Perl.exe, and having then
laid it out canonically there would appear to be a
missing </assembly> at the very end.
