I received a report that MCE is hanging for a CPAN smoke tester and possibly othersby marioroy (Sexton)

marioroy has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm the author of Many-core Engine (MCE) for Perl.
I received an email stating that MCE is hanging for him and possibly other smoke testers out there. The unfortunate thing is that I'm not able to reproduce the issue. What should I do?
This is the message I received
Your MCE perl module's tests hang on all of my CPAN-testing machines:
It's not just that the tests are taking a long time, because if I just leave it there CPU usage and I/O are minimal. I see that there have been no CPAN-testers reports for the module at all, so I guess that it's hanging for everyone else too, and this isn't just an artifact of my environment.
End of message
The last reported (passing) is 1.008. No reports on 1.1x have appeared at http://www.cpantesters.org/distro/M/MCE.html. MCE 1.102 is seen passing at http://code.activestate.com/ppm/MCE/. MCE (any versions) never passed for Windows (32-bit) at ActiveState and I'm aware of that.
Need your guidance on what to do. I'm not able to reproduce MCE hanging on my end like the tester is seeing. And it's hanging where I'm only loading the Module. Really not sure why it would hang there like that.
