After upgrading to perl 5.6.0 I found that pgpenvelope
takes approx 7 seconds to display the first prompt/message.
This is especially annoying when automatically verifying signed 
messages. Reading security related mailing lists becomes a real 

I am not familiar enough with perl to be able to tell why the slowdown
occurred. It sure was a lot snappier with earlier versions (perl5).

I am running perl 5.6.0 / pgpenvelope 2.9.0 / pine 4.31 on a 200Mhz PII
Debian box.

Any hints appreciated,

Things work better when plugged in
