ActiveState PPM/PPM3 just hang up for me

    I am running Perl 5.8.0 on Windows ME. If I run PPM or PPM3, I can
    query my installed modules, but if I try to access the repositories on
    the Internet (eg, typing "search *", it just hangs up. Anybody else
    had this problem? Anybody know the answer?

    Thanks Scott, but I am afraid it is not the answer for me: I have only
    ever had 5.8 on my PC.
