It would appear that you have, as I did, jumped onto 5.001n as it first
appeared.  It turns out, though, that it was only intended for internal
use by the Perl5 porters.  I've been told by a friend of mine who's one
of the P5P's to stay at 5.001m until patch.1o comes out.  And eventually,
Perl5.002 will be available, but I haven't heard any dates yet.
