Ok this is getting out of hand.  5.0 is a testing release.  See:
so of course it is not going to work for everything.  Development is 
proceeding rapidly on 5.0, so the problem you're seeing may be fixed already. 
Installing -current would be the only way to know.  if you tried that and got 
the same error, then they would love to hear about it on the -current mailing 
list so that it can be properly fixed.  It's not likely it will ever be fixed 
for 5.0 release, which is a static point on an again, rapidly moving, 
development track.
        If 4.x works well then use that, or if you want to experiment try -current, 
perhaps by installing a snapshot.

        As a side note, should we put something in the FAQ about this, pointing to 
the early adopters guide perhaps?  I'll write it up if someone will mark it 
up and commit it.
Just my thoughts,
