I can't say *why* you're experiencing what you are, but you might find that
using local::lib will set the environment variables you need so that things
consistently behave. (http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?local::lib)
If it does, it will probably show you which environment variables (which have
their parallels in the cpan config settings). Eg:
export PERL_MB_OPT='--install_base /home/username/perl5'
All the best,
