Oops... My bad :-(. In fact I noticed dap-server bundled an old version
of HTML::Parser some time ago, I reported it upstream, and the maintainer
agreed to remove it. However it crept in later, because the code doesn't
work with the new HTML::Parser. I didn't thought about the issue a single

In that case, as it doesn't really install HTML::Parser it may have
been noticed at some point. But if the perl module is used in the base
