That is what i ended up doing. Using the Perl 5.6.1 from CPAN worked fine.
It messed up my installation of Apache to upgrade perl for some reason. I am
not sure if that was my fault or not. But it is working fine now. I am
wondering what function in ActiveState Perl would allow the everything to
work EXCEPT the password checking in Bugzilla. Any how, thanks for the
reply, its all working fine now.

Thank you,
   Casey Gregoire.

There's already a bug for this, filed by Casey on the 15th. :)

Last I heard he was on RedHat 7.1 running ActiveState Perl...  which threw
most of us because we'd never seen ActiveState on Linux :)  Last action on
the bug I believe was he was trying to install an official RedHat
distribution of Perl to see if that fixed it.
