It looks like the current version of XML::DOM in CPAN is 1.44.  You can 
try forcing it to download a different version with the following from the 
cpan prompt:

 	get TJMATHER/XML-DOM-1.43.tar

(make / test / install should all work, using the longer name)

Otherwise, I'd try updating your CPAN mirror, and see if it's just that 
you're using one that isn't being maintained.
