   It depends a lot on who wrote the package declaration.

   In my specific case, there are lots of packages for database  
access named as "Company::DB", or "Product::Something::DB". And I'm  
pretty sure someone even declared a package "DB" somewhere, or messed  
up with the namespaces enough to leak something into this namespace.

   That's generally what happens when you hire java programmers to  
code perl.
   :-P Don't ask me, please.

   Thanks for the observation, BTW.
   Looking forward to go London for a beer with the Heretics (and  
another one with the Commons).
