I see the same kind of thing.  I just make note of the line I'm on and
C-x C-v <ret> to reload the file again.

If it is annoying enough to you, it should be possible to write a
function to do that for you.  Call it cperl-rest or something.

M-x describe-variable <ret> cperl-version

But that may not be present.  I see that in Emacs 21's cperl-mode.el.
