The "bugs" are probably still there. The point is that you should get a Perl
without threads. It tends to break some modules or some modules just can't
handle them correctly. You'll get your "clean" Perl by compiling it without
any extra parameters:

just get Perl 5.8.2, extract it, and run:

./Configure -des

Perl by the distro is normally in /usr/bin, and the modules in /usr/lib, but
if you compile Perl and its modules by yourself, everything should end up in
/usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib
