My assumption was that I had a perl problem, but your suggestion of  
looking at sources did the trick! I have been fooling around trying  
to figure out how to get prices of US Treasury Bonds, and that was  
the problem. Once I disabled that source for quotes everything was  
back to normal. Thanks!
