The address that is returned is an address in the memory space of 
the running perl interpreter. If you start two interpreters with the
same process, then there is a very good chance that the address is
the same. The address is not an absolute address pointing towards a
shared memory location!

What you are looking for is sharing data between processes. Using
Google or the archives of this mailinglist 
(http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=apache-modperl&r=1&w=2#apache-modperl)
should give you enough information. I've seen proposed solutions with 
memcached, IPC, a special session, some kind of shared memory, a database 
table and more.

Good luck!

Frank
