Thanks for the heads-up. Current Active State Perl does install a
working CPAN shell, and so I have 0.6003 forced in now.

You can find the DBIx::Class automated build output for each Active
State package and platform here:

So this link has the test output for 0.6003 on Win32:

However, that long error output looks nothing like my CPAN report which
was  just
t\cdbi-t\02-Film....................NOK 67#   Failed test 'No warnings
so far'
#   in t\cdbi-t\02-Film.t at line 247.
#          got: '2'
#     expected: '0'
t\cdbi-t\02-Film....................NOK 68#   Failed test 'DESTROY
without update warns'
#   in t\cdbi-t\02-Film.t at line 250.
#          got: '3'
#     expected: '1'

Could the difference in error output be because Active State build all
their 5.8.X series modules with Perl 5.8.0?

Just in case anyone is interested :-)
