WOO HOO!! It's working.. under mod_perl and running very snappy.. for
the curious, I ripped everything out and started from scratch. There
was something in there that was causing trouble. If I get a chance I'll
try to do a post mortum later.
On the plus side ALL of my PERL has been updated- twice! ;)
Thanks for all the help!
