This report is against a very old version of parrot; the MMD system in 
particular has gone through quite a few changes in the ~3 years since 

If you still have access to an HP-UX system, please retest against a 
recent parrot and open a new ticket via https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ if you find any new issues.

Closing ticket.
