Subject Re: Test failures when upgrading from 2.000004 to 2.000005

Hi Torsten,

Thanks for the speedy reply. Yes, you're right, I do have LWP 6.02 installed.

For my personal case, I'll delay dropping back to LWP 5 until I see that something is broken.
I just thought I'd file the bug report as requested at the end of the error output.

All the best,

John
