I have not tried this particular version of perl on Windows. I would 
appreciate it if you could give me some more context for the errors that 
you see. These are new to me.

Also, as of 0.205, there is now a native BPQ interface for Windows 
machines (only), supplied by the man himself. You will find the (rather 
sparse) instructions in /spider/txt.

And you are probably right about retrying the connection. I will look at
