Description Frank Sweetser 2001-07-09 09:46:16 EDT
The CPAN module is essentially useless right now with perl 5.6.0.  Since
Data::Dumper got moved into the perl distro, and the version bumped up,
anytime anything that uses Data::Dumper gets installed, CPAN will try to
upgrade perl for you.  A preemptive upgrade to 5.6.1 fixes this.

This is indeed fixed in rawhide.
