Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the implementation of the Perl

The "x" operator could cause the Perl interpreter to crash
if very long strings were created.

The CGI module does not properly escape LF characters
in the Set-Cookie and P3P headers.

In addition, this update adds a warning to the Storable documentation
