perl.dll is not loadable - initialization routine failed

I've now re-re-installed Pidgin 2.12.0, using the "online" installer and
making sure that GTK was checked. Now, if I am connected to a VPN, then
Perl still fails to load. If I am not connected to that VPN, then Perl
loads. (This is not ideal, since the time that I mostly want to use Pidgin,
I'm connected to a VPN).
