[Israel.pm] What hurts you most in Perl?

The other day I was at a client that uses Perl in part of their system and we
talked a bit about the language and how we in the Perl Ecosystem Group
try to promote it at various events.

Their "Perl person" then told me he would not use Perl now for a large
application because:

1) Threads do not work well - they are better in Python and in Java.

2) Using signals and signal handlers regularly crashes perl.

So I wonder what hurts *you* the most in Perl?
