    Changing scriptdir to empty string in Config.pm resulted in:

I think you have to change that to the real scriptdir, not the empty string.

Meanwhile, I have deleted tlperl/bin/perldoc.bat.  So at least now we
should back to the point where only people with the other Perl installed
are affected.  If I'm following this right.

What I don't understand is why Siep is unable to reproduce the problem
*with* ActivePerl installed.  Siep, you did get a perldoc in your PATH
when you installed AP?  Or maybe it found the AP Config.pm instead of
the TL Config.pm?

Certainly, but the whole theory is that the Config.pm in tlperl is
supposed to be irrelevant.  Clearly it is for some people, and isn't for
others.  Sigh.
