Even if you choose not to upgrade perl itself (to version 5.10.1), you should really run:
perl -MCPAN -e upgrade
Current versions of the CPAN utilities mentioned:
Anomy::HTMLCleaner : Version 1.26
Archive::Zip : Version 1.30
Digest::SHA1 : Version 2.12
HTML::Parser : Version 3.64
HTML::TokeParser : Version 3.57
IO::Socket : Version 1.31
IO::Stringy : Version 2.110
MIME::Base64 : Version 3.09
MIME::Tools : Version 5.427
MIME::Words : Version 5.427
Mail::Mailer : Version 2.06
Mail::SpamAssassin : Version 3.003000
Net::DNS : Version 0.66
Unix::Syslog : Version 1.1
The fact that you aren't using the most current modules could also be part of your problem.
