The same every time?  That's very strange.  I'd start adding some debug
statements to Apache::PerlRun to make sure it really is handling this
script.  In particular, I'd put some warnings in the flush_namespace()
sub to see if it is trying to clear out that sub or not.

One possible explanation for this behavior is that something which did
not warn in older versions of perl (when it was more likely to be
running mod_perl 1 and Apache::PerlRun) now does.  In that case, it
should be possible to patch PerlRun to suppress the warning.  But first,
make sure PerlRun is really running your script and clearing the symbol
table afterward.

Apologies, it shows a lot more detail for Apache::Registry but not for
PerlRun.  You can browse the symbol table of loaded packages though, I
believe, which would include the package generated for your script.
