Perl DBD ORA_XMLTYPE binding causes Segmentation fault

Hello all,
I hope someone can tell me how to troubleshoot or solve my Perl problem I am having. There is an Oracle stored procedure(that I have no control over) that I am attempting to access using Perl (use DBI; use DBD::Oracle qw(:ora_types);). The segmentation fault comes on the binding to the first XMLTYPE in the stored procedure. I am able to run the procedure successfully in Oracle SQL Developer so I believe the DB end is working (maybe). I could post all the code if necessary, but it is typical code I see everywhere else on the web. Here is the portion of code that has the trouble:
print "bind 6\n";
  $query->bind_param_inout(6, \$rtn1, 20000, { ora_type => ORA_XMLTYPE } );
  print "\$@ = " . Dumper($@);
print "bind 7\n";
$query->bind_param_inout(7, \$rtn2, 20000, { ora_type => ORA_XMLTYPE } );

It will print the 'bind 6' and then just fail. When I run it while debugging, is when I see the segmentation fault. The eval catch is never executed not to mention the rest.

Any experience on this issue would be much appreciated!

Oh, I am tracing too. Here is where the bind_param_inout happens. The trace ends at 'dbd_rebind_ph_xml' and that's it:
-> bind_param_inout for DBD::Oracle::st (DBI::st=HASH(0x191e108)~0x189eb20 6 SCALAR(0x17fd668) 20000 HASH(0x189eb14))
dbd_bind_ph(): bind :p6 <== undef (type 0 (DEFAULT (varchar)), inout 0x17fd668, maxlen 20000, attribs: HASH(0x189eb14))
dbd_rebind_ph() (1): rebinding :p6 as NULL (not-utf8, ftype 108 (ORA_XMLTYPE or SQLT_NTY), csid 0, csform 0, inout 1)
 in  dbd_rebind_ph_xml
