 Bug in Perl 5.000 strict vars pragma

I think I've found an anomaly in the  "strict vars" compiler directive
in Perl 5.000.  Consider the following program:

        package Foo;
        use strict;
        $Foo::Bar = 1;
        $Bar = 1;
        print "OK\n";

When I run this with perl 5.000 I get:


However, why  is it not complaining about  line 4,  with the un-strict
notation?  If I comment line 3, it correctly warns of the notation:

        Global symbol "Bar" requires explicit package name at Test.pm line 4.
        Execution of Test.pm aborted due to compilation errors.

I'd really like for  the "strict vars" directive  to warn me  of *all*
non-fully-qualified globals, not just those   that have not been  used

P.S.  Here's myconfig:
