I'll bump the version and upload again tomorrow. That'll probably 
straighten it out.

It seems to me that the default tarball created by "Build dist" wasn't 
suitable for upload. There's something in the changelog of Module::Build 
that leads me to believe it's been fixed in a later version. I used the 
one that came with activestate perl, which appears to be a development 
version (0.2808_01).
