Calling without arguments 'crashes'

Calling GetComponents without arguments produces the following output:

$ ./GetComponents Can't locate object method "initialize" via package "Pod::Usage" at /usr/local/packages/numrel/globus-5.0.2//lib/perl/Pod/ line 531.

I would expect either a human-readable error, or help message.

    It looks like that is an issue with the Pod::Usage module that I use to display a nicely formatted help message. Can you determine the version of the module installed on your system? When I run GetComponents with no options it displays the proper help message, using Pod::Usage v1.35

    it was an really old version of some perl module, installed by the globus utils (, overwriting the much newer system version.
