Egads: a root-owned file that world-writable?!  That's _very_ uncool.

If, by merely changing the group the web server runs as suddenly
make things work, it still leads me to think that the permissions
are off in your Perl tree.

Perl does not install modules world-writable; I think that someone
changed permissions on this file, after the fact. :/

If any component in the path /usr/local/apache/lib/perl5/5.8.3/
is not world-readable, or, in the case of a directory, world-executable,
then user/group nobody/nobody won't be able to read the file.

But this file should certainly not be world-writable.
