I discussed this issue with a Mozilla Bugzilla developer who spoke at this past weekend's DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop.  He commented that the bug appears to be on a fork of Bugzilla of which he was previously unaware.

So, there's clearly nothing more for P5P to do here, so I'm closing this ticket.  Any further issues should first be filed with the CPAN distribution or with Bugzilla itself.

Thank you very much.
