>From dh-make-perl(1):

|        Hey! The above document had some coding errors, which are explained
|        below:
|        Around line 1403:
|            '=item' outside of any '=over'

This seems to be caused by having a '=back' after the last two items
in a list instead of only after the last item, introduced in r21750.

Patch that removes the first '=back' attached. This lets the "POD ERRORS"
section disappear.
