This seems to be working as designed.  The mimetypes come from
`mailcap-parse-mimetypes' that parses a bunch of different files,
including "/etc/mime.types", where on my system I find this line:

text/x-perl                                     pl pm

So I think you should raise this with your GNU/Linux distribution to get
the "application/x-perl" line added, if that's the right thing to do.
You can also add such a line to "~/.mime.types" and it will work as

I'm therefore closing this bug report.
