Hmmm. That's a good catch as I didn't see that :) The docs for are
a little vague so I'll submit a patch to perhaps make it more clear that
the version '_' should be in both the module $VERSION and in the distname
as well. I suspect that is the root of the problem.

I don't know if Lincoln still reads P5P anymore so I'll copy him on this
so he can correct that.
