I'm not sure why you would want a CGI object shared between requests but 
my guess is that it's doing something strange as a result and I can't 
see any advantage to that approach.  If you don't have that $CGI object 
around and it works fine that might be telling you that it's causing 
trouble and not helping.

A few other comments that might keep you from running into other problems:

1) 'perldoc vars' - use 'our' in favor of 'use vars'

2) don't use global variables unless you really need them and they serve 
a useful purpose ($template_header and $template_footer globals are ok 
since they are stateless, $CGI objects are not)

3) try the latest version of libapreq, 2.08.  I don't think it will fix 
your existing problem (which the $CGI seems to be the root of), but 
there have been a number of bug fixes since the release you're using.

4) Take a look at Apache::DBI instead of keeping $db in a global -
$db = ISMH::ConnectDBUser->connect_to_db();

HTH  - I think the simple issue to fix your problem is don't use a 
global $CGI object FWIW
