I suffered from that problem, so I re-ran setup, which reasonably
replaced version 5.8.1 with 5.8.0-4. However, the installation is
taking forever -- the setup screen shows that it's copying the file
that file seems to be growing without bound (it's at 182 megabytes as
I write this).
I too worked around the problem by backing off to perl 5.6.1.

z = x+y
as something between an insult to his intelligence and a sin against God.
