Cygwin Perl upgrade broke Params::Validate.

I just upgraded my perl for cygwin from 5.10.1-? to 5.10.1-5, and Params::Validate::validate changed from returning a hash of arguments (eg %args=(one=>1,two=>2)) to returning a two arrayrefs (eg %args=( 'ARRAY(0x2345dc0)' => ['one',1,'two',2'] ), ).

This naturally caused many things to break. The first error I saw was "Use of uninitialized value $id in pattern match (m//) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10/DateTime/ line 62".

force install Params::Validate fixed the problem.
