Error trying to install extensions

I have installed Foswiki 1.1.4.

I am trying to instal extensions.

I got to the page that said
Configure extension installer will perform the following actions
Adding 33 extensions
SpreadSheetPlugin  from
TinyMCEPlugin  from
BeautifierPlugin  from
VarCachePlugin  from
WorkflowPlugin  from

I clicked to install and got an error
configure: Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch at /System/Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level/IO/ line 192

I looked at the Foswiki configure logs. It got this far:

-rw-r--r--  1 _www  _www  446 Jan 22 17:54 SpreadSheetPlugin-20120123-015456-Install.log
vlb@goto [...logs/configure] 123: cat S*
Installing SpreadSheetPlugin
Loading package installer
fetching installer from ... succeeded

Creating Backup of SpreadSheetPlugin ...
Backup saved into /WWW/cgi-bin/cfcl/Foswiki/working/configure/backup/SpreadSheetPlugin-backup-20120122-175457 
   Archived as /WWW/cgi-bin/cfcl/Foswiki/working/configure/backup/SpreadSheetPlugin-backup-20120122-175457.tgz 

Running Pre-install exit for SpreadSheetPlugin ...

How should I proceed?

Is there a way to run the extension installer from the command line?

Should I just try editing bin/configure to remove -wT and try again?

FYI, I removed -T (kept w) and everything installed as planned.

Hi Vicki,

Wherever you see Foswiki crash like this, feel free to go straight to creating a bug item directly.

I've seen some users have problems with versions prior to Perl 5.8.8, but I thought perl 5.8.8 tainting behaviour should be consistent with 5.10+.

Anyway, created Tasks/Item11521
