I'm running mirror 2.3, but on IRIX and SunOS 4.1.3, and get the
same problems.  It seems that on one-package mirroring, everything works
fine, but once the script tries the next package, the variables aren't
reset properly and old filenames are used as destinations for files
mirrored in the new package.

Unfortunately, I'm far from a perl expert, so if anyone has recoded
Mirror 2.3 to work seamlessly with perl5, please let me know.  If there
are diff changes to be made, I will post a summary.  Thanks in advance...
