After invoking mailnotify, it fails with the following message:
[Wed Jul 18 13:48:43 2007] mailnotify: Undefined subroutine &Algorithm::Diff::traverse_balanced called at /home/twiki/new/MAIN/lib/TWiki/Merge.pm line 205.

I checked and Algorithm::Diff in in the @INC path.

The following patch fixes the problem, but I don't want to risk integrating it after all the work Crawford did to prevent unwanted compilation (and I'm a noob regarding when to use or require or how the .pm modules are loaded).
