Well, version 5.20.0-1 did solve the problem, as far as eliminating
the program exception is concerned.  But it also broke packages
such as libhtml-parser-perl, liblocale-gettext-perl, etc., which
now have unmet dependencies.  No newer versions of these packages
are available.  Therefore, I downgraded perl, perl-base, and
perl-modules to version 5.18.2-4, and put them on hold for now.
(Thank God for http://snapshots.debian.org !)

"apt-get check" now finds no errors, and I can once again upgrade
my system, except for the three packages that I put on hold and
packages which depend on them.  I intend to submit a bug report
for this problem.
