Where did you get it? According to my Ubuntu 12.04, there is only
1.2.1-1.1 (precise) available and that corresponds to the production
version on dirvish.org. On dirvish.org I also see an experimental
release 1.3.1.

Since you are not using the normal version of dirvish, you will need to
tell us what code is present at that line, or wait for somebody who has
the same version. You should also post your config files - both the
failing and working ones.

If you do not understand perl, I recommend that you not try to use
experimental versions, but instead install and use the production
version from the standard repositories.
