I'm using Gentoo Linux with Perl 5.8.1, with Eclipse 3.01 and Perl Epic
0.3.8. When I try to debug a script the following error is written to the
console (It's a simple "Hello World" App):

Unable to connect to remote host: null:5000
Compilation failed in require.

Executing of Perl scripts works fine, perl is located in /usr/bin.
Any hints?

Thanks in advance,

Sorry for replying to myself, but it's actually Perl 5.8.5 that I'm using
