[tpm] Net::SCP and Net::SFTP modules

I have been trying to use Net::SFTP:  it works when I run the application from 
the shell, but not under cron!

Here is my code:

sub deliver {
    my $self = shift;
    my ($host,$directory,%cred) = $self->parse_address;
    my $sftp = Net::SFTP->new($host, %cred);
    my $path = $directory . $self->file_name;
    my $handle = $sftp->do_open($path, $flags);
    # return value not used

I have written a message to the Ssh-sftp-perl-users list, but have yet to 
receive any useful information.

The error message is:

        input must be 8 bytes long  
at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/Crypt/DES.pm line 

This is being run under:
        SUSE Linux version
        perl v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi
        $Net::SFTP::VERSION: 0.10
        $Net::SSH::Perl::VERSION: 1.30

Any help would be appreciated.
