Aside from not having a DTD, it's valid syntax.
..But that's largely besides the point. 

BINS is blowing up in the getConfigXML() function, on the line:

  my %configHash = %{ dclone($currentConfigHash) };

if I replace dclone() with thaw(freeze()) as the Storable perldoc page 
says is equivalent, then I get a slightly different error:

Assertion flags == 0 failed: file "Storable.xs", line 2336 at 
../../lib/Storable.pm (autosplit into 
../../lib/auto/Storable/_freeze.al) line 282, at ./bins line 4139

For whatever reason, the $currentConfigHash has something in it that's 
not quite sane, and Storable is barfing on it.  Now that data is 
generated by the XML parser (XML::Grove and PerlSAX) so, somewhere in 
that chain, something's breaking.  With the most obvious suspect being 
the config file iteself.
