I recall similar pain with Perl. The one Perl list I still frequent
has regular postings about these kinds of problems (which are rarely
answered -- perhaps the maintainers have moved on).
My occasional Java experiences have been *far*, *far* worse in this
respect that what I've seen with either Perl or Python.
Does that tell you much? Not really, and neither do your experiences.
