The tools/DirectedGraphPlugin.pl has several problems including:
  • Hardcoded path for logging
  • Environment variable setting uses linux syntax

Also discovered that tmp files were not being removed by unlink. The File::Temp function builds file names using the windows "\" separator, but unlink won't remove files with the backslash. Have to translate names into unix format.
