[rrd-users] RRDs::error codes

I have a new Ubuntu Server 12.10 32bit installation running on a proxmox 
vm. I have perl verion 5.14.2, rrdtool and librrds-perl installed. 
Running "perl -MRRDs -le 'print q(ok!)'" returns ok!. I am migrating 
some home-written perl scripts from an older ubuntu server install that 
use the rrds module. My scripts can successfully create the rrd with the 
RRDs::create command but RRDs::update seems to have problems, at least 
RRDs::error indicates an error but all it returns is "RRDs::error".

spits out

I had to remove "use strict" from my perl file which is working on my 
older ubuntu install but it was giving me
> Bareword "RDDs::error" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at

Am I missing something obvious?
