This is caused by the
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Net/SSL.pm file
containing the line: 

package DB;

This causes the perl provides finder to think it provides "perl(DB)".

It looks like the code is using the Perl debugging API to reach up the stack (a
pretty nasty hack).  I am not sure why it is doing "package DB" instead of
"require DB".

The provides should definitely be filtered out.
