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

Just installed latest version of Perl community x64 edition on Windows 7.
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:

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 ?

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.
