What I usually do is not so simple.

I rsync, compile and install blead with -DDEBUGGING, run
cpan5.19.whatever, 'look Module::Name', and then start playing around
with it.  That means digging through tests and source code, trying to
figure out what is happening.  For difficult bugs, that may mean copy-
ing requisite modules into its blib/ folder and gutting them, till I
get the failure down to something manageable.

As for simply checking whether a module is fixed yet, I just run 'test
Module::Name' from the cpan shell after installing blead.
