You should upgrade to 0.6.2 due to numerous bug fixes, also, but
by far not limited to Blast.pm. There are still many bugs which
have been reported (see http://bio.perl.org/bioperl-bugs/, choose
the Blast category) but not yet fixed. The main problem is that
the module is not maintained any more by SteveC since about half a
year, and no-one was willing to take over the beast.
