It looks like the latest version of the Perl Storable module (1.000)
has a bug.
LAS works fine with 0.61 but, unfortunately, that no longer seems to be
available from CPAN. I plan on releasing a patch for LAS in the next
day or two that will solve the problem.
To answer Dave's question: the serialized config file is used to avoid
the XML file on every LAS data or user interface request. Speeds things up
by an order of magnitude.

I also have this problem. I managed to work around it by commenting
out line 612 of xml/perl/genLas2.pl:
It appears to me that the current version of the code does not do anything
with the serialized config file anyway, so that (for now at least) this
code is unnecessary. At least I now have a test version of version 4.0
that seems to work. I am curious to know what is the intended purpose of this
serialize/deserialize function. Perhaps one of the developers can explain.
