Is it possible that you have an older version of Apache::Request lying
around that was not recompiled against this new mod_perl ? (hapenned to
me more than once)

What's in the error_log?

Well, maybe, maybe not. In any case, I am planning to go at a mp 1.29
release fairly soon after 1.28 hits the decks. There are still quite a
few itty-gritty bugs I want to hammer out of mod_perl 1, but that are
yet a bit too touchy to roll up in a release without letting the CVS
user some time to see it work/break for them.

If you feel like submitting a back-port of Apache::Reload (with or
without my new namespace deletion code), that has a few decents tests
for it and works with perl 5.5.3 up to bleadperl, I would be happy to
slip it into mp 1.28 with a version of 1.0_0 or similar to make sure
CPAN won't be fooled into installing it for now. Just noticed there is
Apache::Reload 0.07 on CPAN, so it would be safe.

I guess for now the simplest thing would be to _strictly_ backwards port
Apache::Reload with no mp2 specific code in there, just so it can be
shipped in 1.28, then in the 1.29-dev cycle, I can worry about getting
it either on CPAN or synced between both mp1 and mp2, as per the ongoign
discussion with you and Stas on the matter.

So, if you feel you can whip up a complete patch within the next few
days, go for it. Otherwise, I'll delay this for inclusion in 1.29 (and
remember, I would target that one quite soon after 1.28)

Gozer out.
