Subject RE: Apache2::Upload and End of file found error Part 2

Yep, I was just making sure.. That makes it even more of a mystery though, don't you think?
Since then I went though created a new CGI object within that sub whenever I've needed it,
and it seems to work. The problem only appears to happen if a new CGI object is created within
the handler or within a sub that is called from the handler and it only effects upload??????
Bizzare, but I'm trying to move on..

I'm giving that a shot now, If I can get Apache2::Cookie to work right and find some way to
duplicate's "escape" and "unescape" methods I won't need at all..
