Experimental patch for reporter to try


Please try applying this patch and see if you get a more sensible error
message.  Comment in this bug.

Also, what version of perl are you using?   I suspect that it is something like
5.005 rather than 5.6.1 (which I use)

Problem was missing XS.pm from Template library. After installing this perl
module, everything worked well. But the error message could be more helpfull.

The Perl Version is:

cvs:~ # perl -v

This is perl, v5.6.1 built for i586-linux


Marking INVALID, then.
