PPM seems to hang when first synchronizing and takes > 2GB of memory

Just installed latest version of Perl community x64 edition on Windows 7.
ActivePerl-5.24.1.2402-MSWin32-x64-401627
The PPM takes forever synchronizing, with no feedback at all. Memory increases constantly, and is now nearing 3GB! with one CPU core at a full 100%. I just killed the process.

Update: in this version PPM works:
ActivePerl-5.22.3.2204-MSWin32-x64-401627

How to add missing packages

I'm trying to install bugzilla, that requires various perl packages such as TimeDate. I cannot find these in the activeperl installation I have just installed. PPM does not know of the packages.
How do I find and add these with activestate perl ?
Thanks

Number of modules failing to install

I had to downgrade from Perl 5.20 to 5.18.4 a few days ago. Now, a number of modules I need for Bugzilla will not install:
ppm install Net-SMTP-SSL, JSON-RPC, etc.
Error is "... failed 500 write failed: Bad file descriptor"
I am trying to install in a DOS window with Admin privs.
3/4 of the modules that I selected installed fine. The other 1/4 have this issue.

Please advise.
