That does indeed work. (It's probably the equivalent of assigning it to a 
temporary, as I would expect the compiler to build a temporary string out of 
the "..." before handing it to the function. I don't know anything about the 
perl compiler though, so I could be wrong there). 

I'd still like to know why this doesn't work, but knowing I've not missed 
something obvious helps. :)
