   Sorry, this will not help.
   There is nothing on a Perl Module file that justifies it having  
execution bits setted.

   On the other hand, it could be an access permissions problem:  
remember, on a *nix box, to read a file, you need to have scan access  
to all directories above it.

   Check your file permitions, and make sure that the user that is  
running your program have the right ones. If it works with your user  
(or the root user) and doesn't works for the user assigned to the  
application, that's a clear sign about the problem type you have.
