Nothing - it's a bug, a remnant of my aborted attempt at 5.10 support.
Fortunately, there's an easy workaround - while there's no 5.10
support bundle, there *is* support for a CamelBones.plist file that
lists the Perl versions your app supports:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
The way the version-checking works is:
1. If there is no .plist, the default list of supported Perl
versions is: 5.10.0 (this is the bug), 5.8.9, 5.8.8, 5.8.6.
2. Check user defaults for the value of the "Version" key in the
com.apple.versioner.perl domain, and use that *if* it appears in the
list of supported Perls.
3. If no Version key exists, or if it refers to an unsupported Perl
version, check for a support bundle from the list of supported
versions, in the order listed.
4. A value for the "perl" key in the org.camelbones domain overrides
all of this. This key refers to a perl binary (i.e.
/usr/bin/perl5.8.6), not just a version number. The binary is executed
(via NSTask) with run a one-liner that prints the version & arch
strings in a format that matches that of the support bundle file
