In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
In a perl-mode buffer, I have a line that says:
  $instloc = 0;

Put the cursor on the 'n' of $instloc (i.e., the 2nd char of the variable),
and do \C-M-b, i.e., (backward-sexp): it moves to the 'i', not the '$'
Put the cursor on any other character of $instloc and do \C-M-b and it
moves to the '$'.

Why this difference?

Thanks for reporting.  It's a bug in Emacs 21 that has been fixed
in the meantime.  Could you try to upgrade to a more recent version?
