ActivePerl 628 -- PPM crashes during module installation

I'm trying to use the Perl Package Manager (PPM) to install the Date::Calc module on Windows ME. I had the same problem under Windows 98 on the same machine.

Here's what I type at the DOS prompt:

ppm install Date::Calc

The program outputs:

Installing package 'Date-Calc'...
Bytes transferred: 57526

Norton CrashGuard reports:

PERL crashed due to a violation of system integrity. Windows might crash if you try to continue running this program now.

Dr. Watson Reports:
The application or one of its DLLs may have
overflowed an internal temporary buffer.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? I don't see it listed as a bug at ActiveState.

Thanks!
