I took a look with perl-mode included with emacs (unicode-2
from a week or two ago), and couldn't reproduce the problem.
Incidentally, on 22.1.1, I can reproduce the bug, but if I add a space
after the forward subroutine declaration, the syntax is recognized
correctly.  So I guess the bug is fixed in CVS, and can be easily worked
around in 22 if you can't upgrade.

My advice is to switch to cperl-mode, though.  It's much more accurate,
and highlights the example correctly in both 22 and 23.
