Can't use string ("b007cf0r") as a HASH ref...

There's a logic bug in there somewhere.

Could you please run the command which is failing on the platform where 
g_ip has been working and see if that fails?

Also, what are the platforms?

(the error itself is saying '$this is a string with contents "b007cf0r" 
that you are trying to use as a hashref').
