Oops, things just got a little worse.  In the cvs version of emacs, no matter 
what version of cperl-mode (emacs' or Ilya's) I use, even if I turn filladapt 
off in the mode hook, filling is broken as described above.  With the 
addition that even whole line comments won't fill at all. I'm trying to fill 
by pressing <M-q>, which runs cperl-fill-paragraph.

Bummer.
