Yes, I just fixed it. It was on my public facing web site, and I 
couldn't afford to leave it unattended. The problem was that one of the 
$template variables I was trying to assign was null. As usual, I 
narrowed it down rather unscientifically by placing debug statements at 
various locations and keeping reloading the page until I found the culprit.

Well, I hope it doesn't just go away but gets replaced by something more 
helpful. Obviously, it is trying to tell me something is wrong, but it 
is not pin-pointing the location of the error.

Look forward to it. There is a recurring talk of 1.3. Given that the 
move to 1.2 took a while, is 1.3 already around the corner?

Oh, and we still have the perldancer web site stuck on 1.1x or something.
