Hi There,

i was using Catalyst version 5.80007 without any problems. Yesterday i
updated through the cpan-programm zu version 5.80018.

My old Catalyst-Applications (created with catalyst.pl under version
5.80007) now struggle to start in auto-restart-mode with the error:

========= %< SNIP %< =========

While the standalone server without auto-restarting works just fine.

Also when creating a quick testapp whith "catalyst.pl testapp" an
starting "testapp_server.pl -r" just works fine too.

So has the been Restarter-codule changed/abadoned? And how can i easily
update my old applications then?

Thanks in advance,
