It seems that Term::Readline::Perl causes the problems, I cannot reproduce
this after removing the module Term::Readline::Perl.
I'm not sure if your scripts will work again (probably there is
another issue if you don't use Term::Readline::Perl module in there),
but it is worth trying.
If this or more of your problems resolve after removing
Term::Readline::Perl from the dist, then I'll release an new package
of Perl without this module and try to figure out what is the problem
