Hi, I'm trying to build PPI from CPAN but downloading the prerequisites fails: <blah> Running make for A/AD/ADAMK/PPI-1.215.tar.gz Fetching with LWP: Catching error: "Unrecognized character \\x01 in column 20 at (eval 138) line 1.\cJ at /usr/lib/perl5/5.10/CPAN/ line 1469\cJ\cICPAN::Distribution::CHECKSUM_check_file('CPAN::Distribution=HASH(0x267f2d58)', '/home/drowntree/.cpan/sources/authors/id/A/AD/ADAMK/CHECKSUMS') </blah> When you point a web browser at anything inside A/AD you just get a blank gif.

I know this is not really a PPI issue, but I can't find any way of reporting this, and it is a total show stopper for a PPI build in a clean perl install. I have also seen the same across other mirror sites - so I suspect the bad data have been replicated...
