No it is not that. I was searching online. And somewhere someone suggested using the -D option for debugging from the commandline

I'm not sure if it is useful in this case, but -D support has to be compiled into the executable. Hence why I asked.

I remember similar elusiveness of installer crashes under w2000,
which disappeared when running perl under the debugger. There, too,
the text installer was unaffected.

I do, but this is not a matter of recompiling but just of another
batchfile where perl is called with a -d parameter.
