Perhaps my toy example was just too small for the Perl script to cope with.

That must have been the problem. A c100 with a polynomial found by cadonfs ran without problems.
Incidentally, I had to reverse all the signs of the algebraic coefficients because msieve threw up at the concept of factoring a negative integer. Very strange IMO.
Only doing this because cadonfs is
very memory hungry in the linear algebra phase.
