Subject: CPAN.pm uses standalone tar/gzip
After upgrade to CPAN 1.9301 in Strawberry Perl 5.10 it started to use standalone tar.exe/gzip.exe. Thay don't like how they are run. Error is tapeclose: Error rewinding the tape gzip.EXE: stdout: Broken pipe and other messages. When moving tar.exe/gzip.exe out of %PATH%, CPAN.pm works without problems unpacking and installing modules correctly. From CPAN::Config: 'gzip' => q[], 'tar' => q[], Archive::Tar 1.38 Compress::Zlib 2.008 Compress::Raw::Zlib 2.008 IO::Compress::Gzip 2.008 IO::Compress::Base 2.009 CPAN.pm shows no errors by itself. -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

Same problem in latest Strawberry. CPAN 1.9301 Archive::Tar 1.44 Compress::Zlib 2.015 Compress::Raw::Zlib 2.015 IO::Compress::Gzip 2.015 IO::Compress::Base 2.015 IO::Zlib 1.09 -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net
I solved this in both latest dev version of CPAN and Strawberry. Strawberry will set both tar and gzip to ' ' - it prevents from using external versions. -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net
