I suppose you could do both $line and $stat
and the fix would only work when it's on a
single line.

Perhaps something like this would work:

if ($line =~ /whatever/ ||
(defined($stat) && $stat =~ /whatever/)) {
if (WARN(...) &&
$fix) {
fixed[$fixlinenr] =~ s/whatever/appropriate/;
}
}

No worries about getting 'round the the list.
It'll get got eventually.
