http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/10xx/Wx.ppd is returning an HTML-ized "file not found" message with a 200 OK code, instead of a 404 code, like http expects. I can't do very much about that, because I don't run cpan.uwinnipeg.ca. (I'm cc-ing the person that does.) Apparently PPM assumes that the repositories are sanely configured - and maybe I can add some bulletproofing. Easy workaround: remove said repository from list. Bad webmaster. No biscuit! :)
Attaching output from LiveHTTPHeaders confirming this.
