For what it's worth, I was having the exact same problem as Tim (at least, I was
receiving exactly the same errors in the logfiles) but I found a different solution:

I ended up manually deleting a number of perl modules,  downloading fresh, 
known good copies from http://www.helgrim.com/perlmodules/  (THANKS
