I will play around with it-- in the meantime, Guohong, please look at the
where there is a workaround for this issue, using the ppm-shell--

Odd issue, maybe it's a dependency like Bio::ASN1::EntrezGene that's causing
this? Regardless, it's problematic for me to test this out directly, at least
for the next few days. Maybe someone could try it?
Also, there is the Strawberry Perl alternative, which uses CPAN (I think
ActiveState also supports this).
