    open my $fh, '>', $name
      || return 'Could not create test file ' . $name . ':' . $!;

needs to become

    open my $fh, '>', $name
      or return 'Could not create test file ' . $name . ':' . $!;

Cursory check of the rest of Foswiki didn't find any other examples like this.

But a semi-related error was found, the BasicSanity checker results are never returned to the user even when the system status is considered "insane".
