Something detonated my CPAN shell between successive runs. Now, when I try to install a new module, I see this:
I can install a shortcut so you can use the package 'DDS'
as though it was 'Data::Dump::Streamer'. This is handy for oneliners.
*Note* that if you select 'no' below and you already
have it installed then it will be removed.
Would you like me to install the shortcut? (yes/no) [no]
Checking if your kit is complete...

I don't suppose anyone else has seen this? I don't relish going diving in search of the cause of this...
(Things like this make me wish there were a section on PM for "WTF?")
Update: Fixed formatting of code snippet
