Looks like my guess was almost right. We're (for better or worse) an 
oracle shop. The backtrace looks like this:

% sudo -u www-data gdb --args perl ./try-ldap-canonicalize.pl
(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/bin/perl ./try-ldap-canonicalize.pl
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

So the question is, has anyone seen this and do they have a workaround? (I 
ask here because that's where the original question was. If my esteemed 
colleague Dr. Google comes up with an answer, I'll follow up.)
