[mythtv-users] Broken Perl bindings

I have discovered that, to my horror, the Perl bindings in my back end seem to 
be fubared, meaning that my nightly run of optimize_mythdb.pl has been silently 
failing since I upgraded to 0.21.

I know zero about Perl. Is there a fairly straightforward way I can (i) 
determine what's happening and (ii) correct it, or alternatively, install a 
version which works?

I am running Mandriva 2008.0 with the matching packaged version of Mythtv. Any 
reply suggesting I re-install Perl is a no-go since that would mean 
re-installing the whole box from scratch, and I don't want to go there if 
possible. (Re-installing Mythtv /might/ be an option if there is no other way)
