I installed the newest version of cperl (6.2) to show that it doesn't change the situation, but documenting it out doesn't improve it. (Ilya often claimes that the bundled version is buggy, so I had to test this out)
And as I said also perl-mode doesn't work with compile-mode. OTOH sh and python match errors without problems.

Emacsen running (20.7-23.1.50). They don't interfere – except I try to
start server more often than once.
You asked me to change the init files and I think I showed with my little test-case that there is a bug
with the combination of cperl-mode, compile-mode and emacs-23!
To help tracking down the problem, you may test it on your system and try to confirm it or not...
Alternatively I would appreciate a .emacs that fixes this problem.
