CPAN "r" command is confused?

 CPAN "r" command is confused?

We are running Perl 5.005_02 on an "alpha-dec_osf" system.
(Complete prtl -V config listed below, if it's needed.)

I installed the TK::Pod module, and when I then issue a CPAN "r"
command (to obtain its idea of "reinstallation recommendations")
it tells me the following:

Package namespace         installed    latest  in CPAN file
Tk::Pod                        3.14      3.14  ACH/Tk-Pod-0.10.tar.gz
129 installed modules have no parseable version number

But....   I just _installed_ version 3.14.  So, what's going on here?

  o  Is this a Perl problem?
  o  Is this a CPAN problem?
  o  Is this a module problem?
  o  Where is the best place to ask about this?
