FYI, IIRC, the @INC in AS Perl is backwords. It always uses lib/ before
site/lib/, so if you install anything that's included in it's core lib,
it  will still use its version, not the new version you've just installed.

I had the same problem with File::Spec in AS Perl. If you have indeed
installed Scalar::Utils and it's in site/lib, delete the one shipped
with AS from its lib/ directory...

I think that should fix your issue.
