* v1.16, Wednesday, November 19, 2003
   There's a bug in perl 5.8.0-5.8.2 whereby -- depending on how your perl
   is compiled -- the value of $^E (see the Mac::Glue docs for details)
   is modified when accessed.  This patch helps minimize the effect, so
   at least the value is reliable right after a Mac::Glue event call.
   This change makes the value of $^E more reliable even without the bug
   in perl.
   The problem still exists in using Mac::Errors and probably other code.
   It will be fixed in perl 5.8.3 and later.  Here's a patch to your perl
   if you want to fix it locally: 5393
