Well, a perl program should not report 

Use of uninitialized value $fver[2] in string eq

and since the fault was reported on both arch and ubuntu, it clearly
isn't a distro issue. I don't run either arch or ubuntu so I don't know
for sure, but I suggest running the relevant version of 'claws -v' on
either distribution and seeing whether the string that is output
contains a space.

IMHO, there's probably a test needed in clawsker as to whether there
was a space, and probably some consideration of whether that version of
claws is actually outputting the usual output.
