The problem appears to be AR9 specific.  I have no trouble starting AR8 in 
the same way.

Do you know whether the problem always occurs when a perl script tries to 
start AR9, or whether it only occurs if perl has been started by a TL 
wrapper program?  (I think there was a statement in an earlier message that 
the problem doesn't occur if perl is started from the command line.)
