I don't get any hangs with my VC6 + 2003 PSDK builds, and just some
passing TODO tests as well as a single CPAN module failure:

Test Summary Report
../cpan/CGI/t/tmpdir.t                                          (Wstat: 0 Tests: 9 Failed: 0)
  TODO passed:   3-9
../cpan/IPC-Cmd/t/01_IPC-Cmd.t                                  (Wstat: 256 Tests: 459 Failed: 1)
  Failed test:  20
  Non-zero exit status: 1
Files=2339, Tests=528066, 1906 wallclock secs (27.03 usr + 90.13 sys = 117.16 CPU)
Result: FAIL

I've been offline for the last 3.5 weeks and can't remember if
the IPC-Cmd failure is new or not; the passing tmpdir.t TODO tests
have been happening for a while though.
