Net::POP3->new() fails in PerlApp compiled script

P: n/a

This may be a question for ActiveState support, but just in case anyone out
there knows what the problem is...

My call to Net::POP3->new() works fine when run through the perl
interpreter, but fails when I compile the script with PerlApp and run it. My
system is Windows 2000, ActiveState Perl 5.8.0 build 806, PerlApp 5.2.0
build 520.

Here is the script:

################################################## ############
#!perl -w

use strict;

use Net::POP3;

my $p = Net::POP3->new('mail.mydomain.com', Debug=>99)
or die('Server connection error');
################################################## ############

The command'perl pop3.pl' yields this (successful) output:

Net::POP3: Net::POP3(2.23)
Net::POP3: Net::Cmd(2.21)
Net::POP3: Exporter(5.566)
Net::POP3: IO::Socket::INET(1.26)
Net::POP3: IO::Socket(1.27)
Net::POP3: IO::Handle(1.21)

Net::POP3=GLOB(0x1d524ac)<<< +OK X1 NT-POP3 Server mail013.readyhosting.com
(IMa
il 7.10 2193398-16)
Net::POP3=GLOB(0x1d524ac)>>> RSET
Net::POP3=GLOB(0x1d524ac)<<< +OK
Net::POP3=GLOB(0x1d524ac)>>> QUIT
Net::POP3=GLOB(0x1d524ac)<<< +OK POP3 Server saying Good-Bye
However, when I compile it with PerlApp ('perlapp pop3.pl') and run the
resulting pop3.exe, it dies:

Server connection error at pop3.pl line 7.
Any ideas?

Thanks.
