No, $escmode appears to be set for both preload and non-preload.

I am building apache, mod_perl, embperl etc all from source. I haven't had a chance to test
properly (since I have to bring my server down to do it and there are always people hitting
Hopefully I will get more of a chance to play with this next week, once my new server arrives.
I can try a clean install from scratch.

By the way, this new server will be a dual Opteron 265 (i.e. 2 x dual core = 4 CPU as far
as Linux 
is concerned? not too sure about this). I will be trying to install Debian 64-bit. Any reason
this setup of apache1.3/mod_perl1.29/Embperl2 shouldn't work? I guess I'll find out... :-)

Incidentally, Gerald, how about that Wiki? Do you want me to register and get
working, or would you rather just save this as something to do yourself? You said to wait,
but I'd 
be happy to have a stab at it (and of course give you whatever admin/editor rights the software

allows, I haven't played with it that much yet so I don't know the possibilities).
